Several dignitaries expressed their happiness for Munich to host the event:

Michael Diederich, executive vice chairman of FC Bayern: “FC Bayern is pleased that the NFL is stopping off at Munich’s Allianz Arena again this year. The game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2022 was the first time an event unconnected to football took place, and it was a big, internationally recognised success. We’re building on that this year. We look forward to the visit from the Carolina Panthers and the New York Giants.”

Dr Alexander Steinforth, general manager of NFL Germany: “We will continue the successful series of NFL games in Germany with the game between the New York Giants and the Carolina Panthers in Munich on 10 November. The growing number of NFL fans can look forward to outstanding football and entertainment for the third year in a row. We are very grateful to our partners, FC Bayern, the City of Munich and the German Football League (DFL), that we will jointly organise another [American] football highlight in Munich for NFL fans after the debut in 2022.”

Dieter Reiter, mayor of the City of Munich: “We’re looking forward to the return of the NFL to Munich. The debut in 2022 brought a lot of visitors from around the world to Munich. For many NFL fans, and also for us as the City of Munich, it was emotional and unforgettable. The NFL game enriches the offering in our city and we’re therefore once again looking forward to welcoming the many fans and guests from all over the world to Munich for a weekend.”

Of course, the biggest thing on the minds of many Bayern Munich fans is how this will affect the grass inside the stadium. In the past, it has absolutely wreaked havoc.
