The latest SportsPro Podcast ‘Big Interview’ sees SportsPro editor at large Eoin Connolly chat to Brett Gosper, the former chief executive of World Rugby who is now installed as the National Football League’s (NFL) head of Europe and the UK.

As the NFL stages two International Series games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Gosper explains how the league is rebounding from a Covid-enforced break in the British capital, how it is taking on markets like Mexico and Germany, and the implications of a rule change allowing individual teams to market themselves overseas.

The conversation also reflects on his opening months in the job after arriving from World Rugby, what lessons he is applying from leading a governing body and his previous experience in agencies, and how sports like rugby, soccer and American football can collaborate on player safety and the risk of long-term brain injuries.
