If your football team has ever lost a home game because it was chosen to play in the NFL’s annual game in London, you’re painfully aware that the NFL is trying to expand its presence overseas. Well, the English Premier League (that’s soccer) has similarly reached a saturation point in its country and is trying to expand to the States.
There won’t be an Arsenal v. Manchester United game in the U.S. next year, but you can now watch the EPL on NBC Sports. To get America prepped for this football-for-football trade, NBC made a video of Jason Sudeikis as “Ted Lasso,” an American football coach who goes to England to train soccer (er, football) players. If the EPL proves to be as entertaining as this promo, it should do very well.
