NFL fans in general and followers of the Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers in particular can dive to their keyboards this morning and purchase tickets to next season’s Wembley matches, the first year when two will be played at the stadium. Tickets are on sale from 10am today.
The first match will be the kind of one-off set piece we’ve got used to in recent years when the Steelers and the Vikings, both first time visitors, face each other on Sunday 29 September 2013. The fixture on the more traditional date of the final Sunday in October is the ground breaker this time around as the Jacksonville Jaguars begin their multi-year commitment to become London’s “home” NFL team, hosting the 49ers who already have a win at the new Wembley to their credit.
Club Wembley tickets for the pair of matches sold out quickly when they went on sale recently, so demand is expected to be very heavy as this batch of tickets for the standard seats becomes available at 10am. Adult prices for the pair of matches will be between £56 and £160 each, which represents a saving of 20% over buying tickets for the two games separately. If you wanted a Club seat, but missed out before, some of those will be available, too, but separately for each game at £100 or £149 each.
If it’s too early to commit just yet, tickets for standard seats to the individual games are expected to go on sale around 11 January 2013. Further details of all the ticket offers can be found on the NFL UK website.
