The NFL is certainly an emerging market within England as the reputation of the sport grows and the league even takes over Wembley Stadium three times a year.
The league is constantly growing around the world and the chance of it becoming a global game is becoming more and more likely.
From the Premier League to the NFL
One man who is currently harbouring hopes of one day taking to the field in the NFL is Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Kane is a full England international and was one of the top goalscorers in the Premier League last year.
However Kane himself could be looking for a future in the NFL once his playing days in the Premier League are done.
Kane has been speaking about his plans for when his football career career is over and apparently, there is one specific role he fancies in the NFL.
"It depends on how my football career goes but, when I am finished, I would love to go the NFL and be a kicker," - Kane on his future plans
Fancying himself as a kicker, could Kane one day be amongst the likes of Adam Vinatieri, Stephen Gostkowski and David Akers?
Kane netted 31 times in his breakout season for Spurs last year but has yet to score a goal so far in the new season.
Kane does have experience with NFL kickers as the league has signed a deal to host games at Spurs' new stadium when it is finally built.
"We've had NFL teams come to Spurs and I can kick the ball as high and as far as them, but not on a consistent basis so I would need a bit of practice first."
There have been several players in Premier League history who could arguably be contenders for an NFL kickers role, John Arne Riise, Didier Drogba and Cristiano Ronado all come to mind.
