The NFL’s international exchange program, which offers fans access to the world’s top sports events such as the NFL Combine and the Super Bowl, has drawn controversy in recent years.
In 2013, a number of players were arrested and suspended by the league for alleged involvement in a conspiracy to commit money laundering, according to the league.
Last year, the NFL suspended All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green for one year and fined him $25,000 after the NFL found he had helped a foreign criminal organization evade sanctions by purchasing luxury goods from China.
The latest controversy has been sparked by a string of domestic and international games, which have drawn fans to the U.S. and Europe to watch and purchase tickets.
While many sports fans will be unable to access these games, they will still have access to many international events and will enjoy an opportunity to purchase tickets to these events for a discounted price.
