The NFL has temporarily postponed the sale of tickets for the NFL's annual game in London while theSt. Louis Rams resolve issues between the team and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission (CVC). The issues concern the lease on the Edward Jones Dome.
In January, the Rams agreed to give up a home game in each of the next three seasons to play in London. They are scheduled to host the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28, 2012. On Jan. 27, the CVC released a statement reminding the Rams that the team's lease requires them to play all home games at the Dome. They did acknowledge playing in London would elevate the team's awareness.
In addition, the CVC has unveiled a plan calling for $124 million in improvements to the Edward Jones Dome. The Rams’ lease requires the Dome to be among the top 25 percent of all NFL stadiums in several categories. If not, the Rams can break the lease in 2015 and move the team.
NFL UK said in a statement, “The Rams have expressed optimism that a resolution is near, and we will provide updates as information becomes available.”
