Magnusson: US move would be 'good for the game'

West Ham United's non-executive chairman Eggert Magnusson thinks that taking the Premier League to the USA would be 'good for the game' and would boost soccer's global profile.

With the NFL playing their first regular season game away from home, a debate has opened up over whether the Premier League should follow suit and take English soccer to the US.

'I can see that happening sooner rather than later. It would be good for the game,' Magnusson told Sky Sports News.

Arsenal's American shareholder Stan Kroenke added: 'There is probably a good chance of getting a game to go over there because both owners could agree to it,' he said.

'I think there is a reasonable chance it could take place in the future.

'If the Premier League agreed to it you would have it done. It's something that would have to evolve over time - it would be great if it could be Arsenal.'

Wembley is the venue for the encounter between The Miami Dolphins and New York Giants, which takes place on Sunday.

And Jonathan Tisch, co-owner of NFL franchise the New York Giants, admits he would love to stage a Premier League clash in the Big Apple.

'Wearing another one of my hats as head of tourism in New York City, we would welcome an English game in the states,' he said.

'It would be great for New York's tourism, it would be great in the United States too to spread the game internationally.

'People want to be part of this global environment, and sport is a rallying point where people can put aside their differences and root for a team.'

However, a Premier League spokesman told the BBC that there were no current plans for a move.

'I just don't see it happening,' said the spokesman.

'With the way the league is structured - on a one-home, one-away basis - you would damage the integrity of the competition by fiddling with the dynamic of the League.'
