The NFL hits London - but does London care enough for a franchise?
23rd October 2014

This Sunday the Atlanta Falcons take on the Detroit Lions in the NFL at Wembley Stadium.

It's the second of three games taking place at Wembley this year. The 84,000 tickets available for all the games sold out in days. To put that into context, England's home game against San Marino earlier this month sold 55,000 tickets. But is popularity enough to consider a London based NFL franchise? 

Jake Tupman went to ask some of the Falcons what they thought at their training base, The Grove Hotel, near Watford.


Not The One Show's Big Question looked at the possibility of an NFL franchise in Wembley.
