The suspicion that the 39th game might have been one of the things that attracted Fenway Sports Group to Fulham only grows.

President Sam Kennedy made it clear that hosting Premier League football in Boston is something they would definitely be interested in.

We do not have any traction yet in the U.K. with this idea, to be clear, but we’d like to pursue the concept of bringing an English Premier League game to Fenway Park, if they would ever be interested. We think it would be a cool way to celebrate Fenway’s 100th anniversary.

We know how hard it is to schedule matches, so it may be tough to pull off and it may just be an idea and nothing more than that. But we’d love to explore that with our friends at Fulham and the folks at the English Premier League.
