In the last five seasons the National Football League has staged 17 official games at neutral sites. There has been an almost unprecedented number of official neutral-site games as of late. The league’s desire to gain more of an international audience – with games in Canada and England – and a roof collapse in Minneapolis has led to the recent influx of neutral-site games.

Listed below are all the official NFL (AFL & AAFC too) games played at a neutral site.

Click here for a list of neutral-site exhibition games.

Here is a Google Map that shows the exact location (unless otherwise listed) of every neutral-site/non-league venue game.

 

Note: A game was listed below if it was played at a stadium that wasn’t a regular-season home to any of the league’s teams. Meaning a league game played at a non-league team’s stadium was counted as neutral-site game – even though such a matchup was technically a road game for the league’s team.

More specifically, a game was also listed if it was played at a stadium that wasn’t the regular-season home to any of the game’s participating teams (i.e. the Vikings’ “home” game at TCF Bank Stadium in 2010).

 

Major Professional Football Games Played at Neutral Sites

Stadium names have changed often throughout history. To be consistent a stadium is listed with their most current/recognizable name.

Reminder: Non-league away games are included in the list below; even though such games are technically road games for the league’s teams (i.e. of the NFL’s Hammond Pros at the non-league Chicago Boosters in 1920).

Columns can be sorted by clicking on the titles in the header. You can quickly find a specific city, state, stadium, season, or team using the search box to the right.
