The NFL 2022 London Games will be organised in two different venues in London. The opening game between the Vikings and the Saints will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, along with the second game. However, the final game between the Broncos and the Jaguars will be played at Wembley Stadium in London.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the home stadium of Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur, whereas Wembley is used as the home for several English national teams. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium can accommodate 62,850 spectators, whereas Wembley, one of the biggest stadiums in Europe, can accommodate 90,000 people in its stands.
The NFL London Games will be available to watch on Sky Sports, ITV as well as the NFL game pass. The ITV Network will be broadcasting the last two of the three games, meanwhile, the opening game will be shown on Sky Sports.
Whereas the games that will be broadcasted by ITV remain free for viewing, Sky Sports needs a subscription package to watch the game it is set to broadcast.
All tickets for the NFL London Games have been sold out from the league’s official website. However, third-party ticketing platforms such as TicketMaster have tickets left, which cost significantly more than what they were priced on the NFL website.
