- 22 Oct: Arizona Cardinals v LA Rams
- 29 Oct: Minnesota Vikings v Cleveland Browns
Twickenham Stadium’s two 2017 National Football League’s (NFL) fixtures and kick off times have been confirmed, as the full NFL schedule was revealed this morning.
Following the success of the NFL’s inaugural game at Twickenham last year, in which the Giants beat the Rams 17-10, two regular season games will be held at the home of England Rugby this October.
Arizona Cardinals will play LA Rams on Sunday 22 October, 6pm. Minnesota Vikings face the Cleveland Browns a week later on Sunday 29 October, 1.30pm.
'A great opportunity'
The partnership between the RFU and the NFL was announced in November 2015 and allows the NFL to play a minimum of three regular season games at Twickenham Stadium over a three-year period. The agreement also gives the NFL the opportunity to stage two additional games over the same period.
“Hosting the NFL at Twickenham for the first time last year was a huge success and provided us with a great opportunity to showcase the stadium as the adaptable and world-class venue that it is," said RFU Chief Executive, Ian Ritchie.
NFL UK's Alistair Kirkwood said he was looking forward to welcoming the teams to London, three of which have yet to play in the UK.
“It means our fans have the chance to watch star players such as Baltimore’s Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Joe Flacco, and one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history in Larry Fitzgerald of the Cardinals," said Kirkwood.
"Having one of the most famous fan groups in the NFL, Cleveland’s Dawg Pound, sharing Twickenham with our UK fans is going to be a lot of fun."
Tickets for the individual games go on sale at 10 am UK time on April 27 to those who have previously signed up for NFLUK’s register of interest. Additional details can be found at nfluk.com.
