NFL Wembley Game: London To Have NFL Franchise Soon?

With the NFL returning to Wembley this weekend, it throws up the usual question of whether London will ever have its own American Football franchise.

Originally offered at 25/1 when the first match came over in 2007, William Hill now offer just 4/1 that London has its own franchise before the end of 2020.

"American Football has never been more popular on these shores and with three British people drafted this year, it seems that there is certainly an appetite for playing as well as watching the sport," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "It is certainly not out of the question that we could see a British franchise soon."

What is slightly more dubious, is whether London will host a Super Bowl before the end of 2020 - offered at 50/1 by William Hill.

Pittsburgh Steelers are 4/5 favourites to win the game on Sunday with the Minnsota Vikings 21/20.

Match betting:

21/20 Minnesota Vikings; 4/5 Pittsburgh Steelers

4/1         London to have its own franchise before the end of 2020

50/1       London to host a Super Bowl before the end of 2020
