October 01, 2012, 1:09 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- For the sixth consecutive year, Wembley stadium gets a taste of a different kind of football, as the NFL International Series comes over from the US for a one-off match on 28th October 2012.
Ex-pat Americans and curious Brits alike will be glad to welcome back this bombastic sideshow to one of the world's most famous football stadiums. On this year's tour, the Super Bowl runners up New England Patriots take on the St Louis Rams.
The Patriots came off second in the 2012 Super Bowl to the New York Giants, when the team's two Ďsuperstar' quarterbacks, New England's Tom Brady and New York's Eli Manning, went head to head.
The Patriots will be looking to reinstate their authority and get some serious headwind going into the winter period of the new season. American Football is regarded as a real showpiece event in London, given how rare the opportunity is to see this sport on the British side of the Atlantic.
For fans and newcomers wanting to make a extra special occasion of this showpiece sporting event, LondonTown.com has some suggestions for great London hotels at discounted rates that will give you a luxurious place to lay your head as part of the American Football weekend.
