That's in the last week. Obviously going to be a lot of disappointed fans here in the UK as the capacity will be only approx 100,000. Seems to me the NFL in the UK will be here to stay if the early interest is anything to go by.

Capacity of around 85-90,000.
Take out the first couple of rows of seats and you lose a couple thousand more. Remember, it's a football stadium and isn't designed like NFL stadia whose seats look down on the field.
I'm on the list for tix before they go on general release, whether that actually guarantees me any is a totally different matter altogether!

Damn! Didn't think it would be that popular so I didn't even bother to look into getting tickets just yet....oh well, I'll be watching on TV again.....
Long term though, if there is that kind of popularity then its very good news. Shows that there is a demand for top-quality football. With all these yanks buying Premiership teams as well, the idea of a Uk franchise in a few years time may not be such a crazy suggestion after all......

And you'll be able to gamble on the outcome of the game right outside the stadium. The hypocritical pricks running the NFL have no problem with gambling on the NFL as long as it doesn't happen in Las Vegas.
