New Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan met the Jacksonville media today at a press conference. In the press conference, while addressing questions about the team staying in Jacksonville, Khan was asked about the possibility of the Jaguars playing a game in London, England. For the past few seasons, the NFL has played at least one game across the Atlantic Ocean, but former owner Wayne Weaver has always been adamant against giving up a home game in order to play overseas.

Shahid Khan however, likes the idea of potentially growing the fan base internationally.

Khan stated that he wants to grow the fan base, and grow it internationally. "Internationally, fans don't really know the difference between the Jaguars and the Steelers. Why shouldn't we be the flag carriers," Khan said in his press conference. Khan went on to compare it to something like the English Premier League, who's popularity is global, including in places like the Middle East, etc.

"I think it would serve Jacksonville well to play a game or two overseas, to get the name Jacksonville out there," Khan said. "To develop Jacksonville overseas."
