Cheerleaders Enjoying London Scenery

The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders took in the sights around London on Monday and even got to see The Queen of the United Kingdom. The girls will be cheering on the Falcons as they take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

While the Falcons football players are hard at work in the UK countryside preparing for Sunday's matchup with the Lions, the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders are in the heart of London, spreading lots of Rise Up spirit around the city.


Ten of the 36 members are in England now, making appearances at different events, and they'll be joined by the rest of their teammates later this week as the full team will perform at Sunday's game at Wembley Stadium.

On Tuesday, Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders Brianna S., Naiz B., and co-captain Alice F. took in the sights around London, including visits to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Abbey Road and even got a chance to see the Queen drive by in a motorcade.

There's plenty of work to be done while in London, however, and the cheerleaders got right to it Monday, participating in a Play 60 event at a nearby elementary school with the players. On Tuesday night, they'll be traveling to a soccer match three hours away to perform there.

Later this week, after the full team arrives, they'll get a chance to practice inside Wembley Stadium before Sunday's game.

"I know their big thing is soccer over here, so it'll be interesting to see how the crowd will react, especially to cheerleaders and our performances," Alice F. said. "We've really been preparing to bring our best routines and we want to put on a good show and impress everyone."
