One of the most popular NFL podcasts in the world outside of North America is Sky Sports “Inside the Huddle” featuring UK NFL expert Neil Reynolds and NFL Europe/CFL coach Jeff Reinebold. Broadcasting twice a week out of the Sky Sports studio in London, England and attracting an enormous audience, the show is a must listen for American football fans in the United Kingdom and is getting more popular in many other parts of the world.
Talking about everything NFL for the past few years, the duo has a faithful, almost cult following and so they decided to take the show on the road in Great Britain.
On the Road
They have been recording the “Inside the Huddle” shows in front of packed audiences in select cities in the UK. These fans get to meet this most unlikely pair and ask them questions about anything related to the NFL whether it be about the popularity of a team, the advantages of one stadium over another, coaching changes or analyses of the playoff and Super Bowl contending teams.
Both Reinebold and Reynolds are highly knowledgeable and with their backgrounds they can handle almost everything the audience throws at them.
The first two stops were in Newcastle and Edinburgh. The team has two more dates as they will be at The Point at Lancashire County Cricket Club, Talbot Road, Old Trafford, Manchester on Wednesday, January 20 at 7:30 PM. The final event takes place at 7:30 PM Thursday, January 21 in Birmingham at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, The NEC Birmingham, Pendigo Way, Birmingham, West Midlands.
The doors open at 6 PM both nights with plenty of NFL merchandise on sale.
This event is FREE to attend so if your live in the vicinity simply go to the link and fill out your details to apply for tickets and the team will confirm your place with a separate email if you are successful with your application.
