NFL UK Seattle VS Raiders Game Moved to Wembley Stadium

The NFL UK game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Oakland Raiders has changed venues due to building delays.

The match was originally scheduled to be played at Tottenham Hotspur’s’ new stadium. However, the new facility won’t be finished in time. The Seahawks Vs Raiders game on October 14 will instead take place at Wembley stadium, per previous NFL UK matches.

The delay in the opening of Tottenham’s new stadium is due to safety concerns, the club outlined on Monday.

Tottenham’s Premier League games against Liverpool (Sept 15) and Cardiff City (Oct 6), have also been moved to Wembley.

“We know this will be disappointing for all our season tickets holders, premium members and our fans worldwide. We appreciate the support our partner the NFL has shown since the extent of this issue became evident today,” Chairman Daniel Levy said in the statement. “At the start of the project we asked for your support during what we knew would be a complex and challenging build and now we ask for your continued patience and forbearance.”

Mark Waller, NFL Executive Vice-President added that the NFL “totally understand[s] the issue.”

“We shall continue to work with them towards making our future games at Spurs a huge success,” Waller said. “The new stadium will be an amazing venue for the NFL and we are very excited about our long-term partnership with Tottenham Hotspur.”

A revised timetable will be outlined as soon as necessary re-testing has concluded.

The Raiders VS Seahawks clash is one of three NFL UK games scheduled for the upcoming 2018 regular season.

The Tennessee Titans play the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 21. As well as that, the Philadelphia Eagles play against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 28.
