Longer NFL season a benefit for Door County

The National Football League will expand to a 17-game regular season and that would mean extra business for Door County.  The NFL Players Association has approved a new 11-year collective bargaining agreement.  Part of that pact calls for reducing the preseason to three games and adding one regular-season game.  Jon Jarosh, the Communications Director for Destination Door County, says that would add to the benefits a Packers home game already brings to area inns and attractions.




The expanded regular season could begin as early as 2021.  The new agreement will also add one NFC and one AFC team to the playoffs. Had the new playoff structure been in place last season, the Packers would have been in one of the first-round games.
