Wembley here we come ... again.
The St. Louis Rams have reportedly come to an agreement with their city's Convention and Visitors Commission (see earlier post last week) to allow the team to play a home game against the Patriots in London as scheduled. Ticket sales for the October 28 contest have resumed on the NFL's United Kingdom-based website.
Last week, it appeared that the game was in jeopardy because of contractual issues the Rams had with the CVC with regard to the Edward Jones Dome, where they play their home games in St. Louis. However, it appears a deal has been struck and is on the verge of being made official. As a result, the Patriots and Rams will meet at historic Wembley Stadium this fall, as was announced a few weeks back, thereby continuing without interruption the string of NFL International Series games played there since the league resumed going to London on an annual basis in 2007.
