Description

In 1991, their first year of existence, the London Monarchs won the first World Bowl title at Wembley; though just seven years later the team had folded and swiftly disappeared from the sporting public's consciousness. American Football's Forgotten Kings recounts the story of the only professional American football team to ever exist in England.
