In all seriousness, how did they decide who gets which country/ countries? Did the teams bid for these marketing rights, or were they randomly awarded?

If you look at the map, other than a few minor exceptions (most notably, the 9ers in UK), it seems they mostly just assigned out countries based on which were the most convenient geographically for each team.  East coast teams went to Europe, South to Mexico, North to Canada, etc.

I'd imagine both the NFL and teams were on board with that approach, trying to keep it relatively simple, while still of course going for the cash grab.

Germany got Patriots and TB because of Gisele Bündchen.
