The Falcons announced today they will be participating in the NFL International Series in 2020.
We're going International!
We will play a home game in the NFL International Series next season. https://t.co/N2IicgEkJd

The date and location of the game have not been released yet. What we do know is it will be considered a home game for the Falcons, leaving them with only seven matchups at the Benz next season. However, given how poor attendance has been in Atlanta the past two years, it might not be much different for some of the younger guys.
This is the second time the Falcons will play in another country. The last time they blew a 21-3 lead to the Lions across the pond at Wembley Stadium in London and lost 22-21.
