Detroit Lions @ Atlanta Falcons
26 Oct 2014 - 1:30 PM
In one of three NFL International Series games at Wembley in 2014, the Atlanta Falcons will host the Detroit Lions on Sunday October 26.
The new 1.30pm kick-off time will give fans a fourth game window on an NFL Sunday for the first time, while allowing a global audience to tune in at a new, earlier time.
“We are excited about playing three great games in the UK and are thrilled to debut a new game time that we think will be a hit with fans on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Mark Waller, NFL chief marketing officer.
“The new early kick-off is another landmark for the International Series,” said Alistair Kirkwood, managing director of NFLUK. “It will complement the fantastic atmosphere we have at our night-time games and will offer the fans a different experience. It is also a great chance for London and the International Series to be showcased and for the whole of the US to witness the knowledge and passion of the UK fans. We are excited that our game will mark the start of an unprecedented four-game NFL Sunday.”
