Default Vikings and Steelers to play at Wembley on September 29, 2013

In response to outstanding and growing fan support of football in the United Kingdom, the NFL will take a historic step in its international development in 2013 when for the first time two regular-season games will be played in the UK.

On Sunday, September 29, 2013, the Minnesota Vikings will host the Pittsburgh Steelers at London's Wembley Stadium.

This is in addition to the previously announced game set for Sunday, October 27, 2013 - also at Wembley - when the Jacksonville Jaguars will host the San Francisco 49ers.

More details on this game can be found here.

Let's have no negativity guys, let's embrace what we have be given. The Vikings and Steelers is a wonderful matchup if just for the history of the teams. I'm sure we are going to have the can we fill Wembley twice, can i afford 2 games in a month etc but let's see what info is given over the coming weeks.

I for one will try to get to both but it may be a go down and come back same day job to keep expenses down, exciting stuff tho and a big well done to all that has made this happen.

It is a risk but nfl fans in the uk and Europe need to get behind these two games. They asked if we wanted two we said yes and they gave us two so lets get excited and support anyway you can.

I was pretty happy with the Jags/49ers match, but I'm absolutely ecstatic that the Steelers will be playing! And two matches with three very good teams is the best thing that could happen for the international series. I'm definitely going to try for tickets to both games, but to see the Steelers in London is the chance of a lifetime for me.
