London tickets sell fast

The NFL announced today that the first 70,000 tickets for the NFL game between the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Wembley Stadium this October 25 have been sold — including 20,000 in the first seven minutes of sales.

After selling out the initial allocation of 70,000 seats, a limited number of additional tickets have been made available to the general public at www.ticketmaster.co.uk through this Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Alistair Kirkwood, managing director of the NFL UK, said that the game sold more quickly than the previous two NFL regular season games in the UK.
