Despite the recent end of NFL Europe in June of 2007, teams still remain and are forming around the world and the popularity of American Football is attracting more spectators into a sport whose culture is similar no matter the location. A locker room in the US smells the same as a locker room in Budapest. A coach leads his team in prayer before the start of the semi-finals in Budapest just as a high school coach leads his team before a Friday night game. For the Budapest Wolves, who are all semi-professionals and do not receive payment for playing, their season ended 10-2 after a loss to the St. Poulten Invaders on June 23, 2007. Many of the players, including the coaches, come from the US during the off-season to train for college football or tryout for the NFL.
