NEW YORK (May 8, 2002) -- While the NFL's American Bowl series of international games began in 1986 as a response to the growing interest in American football around the world, the league has been playing games overseas for much longer.

Starting in 1950, members of the NFL travelled north to take on a representative from the CFL, and in 1960, the Chicago Bears and New York Giants met in Toronto, Canada.

The following is a table commemorating the NFL's rich history of international competition, with * denoting an American Bowl Game.
