International Marketing Home Areas

Several teams have International Home Marketing Areas (i.e., a foreign country where they build stronger relationships).

Teams "stake a claim" to a foreign country, and multiple teams can target the same country. The Jags have been doing this in the UK for a while, which isn't a surprise because the owner is English.

The Steelers have a similar sweetheart deal with Ireland. Miami has called dibs on Brazil. The Saints are tied to France. There are a lot of others ...

To the best of my internet sleuthing ability, the Lions have yet to ask for their own IHMA.

Where would you like to see the Lions?

Let's say that Germany, the UK and Mexico are off-limits for this exercise (as they're already saturated with other teams).

I don't think anybody's called Italy ...
