LONDON -- Less than 48 hours until kickoff, and the game between the Bears and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Wembley Stadium is selling well.
Because of the lockout, ticket sales didn't start until September. But about 75,000 tickets are accounted for, which is about 9,000 short of capacity for an American football game.
This, however, doesn't reflect poorly on the NFL here.
A Sept. 6 match between England and Wales had an attendance of 77,128, about 13,000 short of capacity. And the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final between Wigan and Leeds had an attendance of 78,482, which means there were about 12,000 empty seats.

UPDATE: According to Pro Football Talk, last year's game between the Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers had an official attendance of 83,941. In 2010, the game between the New England Patriots and Bucs had 84,254.
