American Football: Rams agree to play in London


The NFL says the St Louis Rams have agreed to play regular season games in London for the next three years, first facing the New England Patriots in 2012.

The Rams and Patriots will play on 28 October at Wembley Stadium, the sixth year in a row the league will play regular season games in London.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said: "We are confident that having the Rams host one game in the UK in each of the next three seasons will allow us to better serve the growing popularity of our sport beyond the borders of the United States."
