CBS Preps For Third Time Airing NFL Regular-Season London Game
Published October 26, 2012
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).
Meanwhile, The Patriots held a Friday walkthrough "in a most unusual place" – London's Hyde Park. Buckinghamshire resident Mike Simpson-Jones said, "I’m walking through and see a lot of guys in gray suits and I kind of think it has something to do with American football" (ESPNBOSTON.com, 10/26).
