| No Comments

The NFL announced Tuesday that the Minnesota Vikings would play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Wembley Stadium in London in 2013 according to the Pioneer Press.
The game will take place on Sept. 29, 2013, in Week 4 of the football season reports the Pioneer Press.
This is the first time the Vikings have played in London since 1983, reports CBS News.
Mark Wilf, president and owner of the Vikings, believes this is an exceptional opportunity for the team.
"We are honored to represent the NFL on a global level, and we look forward to playing in front of our international fan base," Wilf said in a statement reported in the Pioneer Press.
The Pioneer Press reports the Vikings are able to host a game in London due to their flexible lease with the Metrodome in Minneapolis.
CBS News reports the Jacksonville Jaguars will host the San Francisco 49ers at Wembley Stadium in 2013 as well. This marks the first time London will hold two NFL games in the same year according to the Pioneer Press.
