The NFL is expanding its worldwide reach to Brazil

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The NFL is expanding its worldwide reach. A regular season game is in Sao Paulo, Brazil, next year. The league says Brazil is a big market with more than 38 million football fans, meaning American football, as opposed to football, which has even more fans. The game will add Brazil to other international venues, the U.K. and Germany. The league says Spain could make the cut as soon as next year. It's MORNING EDITION.
