While the NFL is still a relatively new league, the sport has enjoyed a recent surge in viewership. The increased popularity of the game has allowed the league to secure significant broadcasting rights to the sport.
Of course, the league has also done this by making the games more exciting. But it’s also resulted in a new, slightly less stressful way for fans to watch the games. One of the ways is by streaming the games directly on the NFL Network which allows fans who can’t get to the stadium, to watch the games. The NFL has also expanded the use of social media to further connect the fans with the players and the league.
The big question now is how will it fare in the hands of the fans. The NFL has always been known for its loyalty to its players, but this new deal is probably one of the most lucrative. And while other leagues in the US have had their own issues in the past with the way they treat their own players, the NFL has shown no signs of change. Just that in the past year the league has hired a lot of former players to help with the media relations and fan relations.
