The NFL and Yahoo! Inc. announced Wednesday a first-ever partnership that will exclusively digitally deliver the NFL's International Series game in London between the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars on October 25 to fans around the world for free on any device.
"The NFL has always been committed to being at the forefront of media innovation. Through this partnership with Yahoo -- one of the world's most recognizable digital brands -- we are taking another important step in that direction as we continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving digital media landscape," said Roger Goodell, Commissioner of the National Football League.
"We're thrilled that the NFL has chosen Yahoo for this historic opportunity," said Marissa Mayer, President and CEO of Yahoo. "It marks a significant change in the way users can access this amazing content. The NFL and Yahoo have both long engaged football fans around the world. Our partnership provides the ultimate football experience -- with digital availability, designed for the modern fan."
The NFL also reached agreement on a deal with YouTube earlier this year to make their channel viewable on Google searches.
