(FOX BUSINESS) – The National Football League has played many games in London in recent years and now one of the league’s team owners is interested in one of the British capital’s premier sports venues.
Shahid Khan, billionaire owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, has offered to buy Wembley Stadium for $800 million, the New York Times reported.
Wembley is currently owned by England’s soccer association and hosts the national team’s matches, domestic championship finals and many of Britain’s other major sporting events.
It has also hosted NFL games on a regular basis over the last decade.
In 2015, Khan signed a deal where the Jaguars would play at least one game a year at Wembley through 2020.
