Friday’s announcement of the 2012 teams was welcomed by the MD of Thomson Sport, the Official Travel Partner of the NFL in the UK, who described the fan experience as ‘unmissable’
The NFL also announced the exciting news that the St. Louis Rams have signed up to play a regular season home game at Wembley in each of the next three years, starting with this year’s game.
“This development means fans can get behind a team with a strong link to the UK and it will help to continue the growth of the NFL in the UK,” said Tom Forshaw, MD of Thomson Sport.
“There is such a passionate NFL fan base here and it’s important that fans are being recognised for their unfaltering support. The news can only make the sport more popular than ever in the UK and it is a great feeling for Thomson Sport to be in the middle of the action.”
