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 Fox and I am the Managing Editor NFLGirlUK, having founded the blog in 2014 and followed the game since 2012 (#GoHawks). 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).

Promoting the game in the UK

Itweet-NFLUKchat‘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, the hashtag reaches an estimated 12,916 accounts over 15,000 impressions.

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.
