News and views on all things American Football from a fans perspective

Welcome to NFLGirlUK.com, one of the fastest growing american football blogs in the UK. Here you will find the latest news, as well as exclusive player interviews and insight from leading experts.

My name is Liz and I am the Managing Editor NFLGirlUK, having founded the blog in 2014. I’ve watched the blog grow from covering just the NFL to now covering all aspects of American football from National Football League (NFL), Canadian Football League (CFL) and College Football (CFB) to the grass roots of the game here in the UK with British American Football (BAFA).

Meet the team

I am supported by three deputy editors who assist in the day-to-day running of the site: Kadeem SimmondsDuncan Terry and Jonathan Payton have overall responsibility for providing opinion on the latest developments across the NFL and in taking a more in-depth look at the issues impacting the game. Kadeem is a Miami Dolphins fan and has followed the game since 2014. Duncan is a Seattle Seahawks fan and has followed the game since 2007, and Jonathan is a New York Jets fan having followed the game since 1984.

Together, we are supported by a team of 10 reporters:

  • Stuart Anderson is a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan who has followed the game since 1986.
  • Jonathan Cumbleton is a Philadelphia Eagles fan who has followed the game since 1990.

Promoting the game in the UK

I’ve made it my aim to help promote and grow the game here in the UK and in doing so, created a weekly Twitter discussion (back in October 2015!) which happens every Sunday at 5pm using hashtag #NFLUKChat. Each week, within the first hour the hashtag has seen a minimum of 226 tweets with a reach to over 60,000 users landing on more than 325,000 timelines.

Meet with other NFL fans here in the UK

As well as the weekly chat, we also created #NFLUKFanMeetUp, the perfect opportunity for fans from across the UK to get together in one location to talk all things NFL, share stories, get to know each other and make new friends. To find out more on this, visit the events page.

Many thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy the blog.
