NFL International Series 2013: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Minnesota Vikings
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.
This is in addition to the previously announced game set for Sunday 27 October 2013 – also at Wembley – when the Jacksonville Jaguars will host the San Francisco 49ers.
“Since we started playing regular-season games in London five years ago, we have heard very clearly from our UK fans – they want more football,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who announced the final schedule of UK games for 2013 at the NFL Fall Meeting in Chicago. “We are excited to play two games in London and take this next step in the growth of our game. We believe that more football will lead to more fans.”
The Vikings and Steelers will play the first of the two 2013 NFL games at Wembley Stadium on 29 September. The game – a Vikings home game and a one-year commitment by the club – is the first for Minnesota in the UK since a 1983 pre-season game at Wembley.
“This is a unique opportunity for the Vikings organisation to highlight our brand on an international level,” said Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf. “Playing in London provides exceptional exposure to the team, as well as Minnesota’s impressive business community and tourism industry. We are honoured to represent the NFL on a global level, and we look forward to playing in front of our international fan base.”
The Steelers, owners of an NFL-best six Super Bowl championships, will play for the first time ever in London.
“We are thrilled that our players and Steelers fans around the world will be able to enjoy the atmosphere at historic Wembley Stadium,” said Steelers President Art Rooney II.
