The Vikings are scheduled to move into a new stadium in 2016 and currently play in the Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome. The team has a flexible lease at its present stadium which means it’s not under contract to play all of their games at the Metrodome. The league owners met in Chicago recently and approved the game.
British NFL fans will also be treated to a game this season as the New England Patriots will lock horns against the St Louis Rams at Wembley on Sunday Oct. 28. at 5 pm local time. Tickets for adults cost between 50 and 100 British pounds (approximately U.S. $85 to $161) Club seats can be bought for 149 pounds ($240) while children under 16 are admitted for just 17.50 pounds ($28).
In total, nine different NFL teams have flown across the /Atlantic Ocean to help promote the NFL and themselves since the 2007 season. The first game in England was between the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins. In general, the NFL contests do very well in London, with Wembley Stadium usually selling out and attracting over 84,000 fans to each game.
