Events continue throughout the weekend leading into the game. The NFL will host a fan rally Saturday at Trafalgar Square, followed by the "London Bash" night event presented by Virgin Atlantic and Barclaycard at Under the Bridge on Chelsea FC Fulham Road. On gameday, the league is hosting a tailgate event outside Wembley Stadium, with a more exclusive hospitality event at Wembley's Great Hall (THE DAILY).
