Football Anyone? Ticket Sales Back on for Rams London Game
ST. LOUIS–(KMOX)–After being halted earlier amid a home turf lease dispute, ticket sales for the Rams proposed London game next season have resumed again.
The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission had earlier put a stop to ticket sales for a Rams game against the New England Patriots planned for October 28 at Wembley stadium in London.
But now sales have resumed with the CVC releasing a statement about working out a deal.
“The CVC and the Rams have been discussing a resolution to this issue and are trying to come up with a solution that benefits the St. Louis community and the Rams. This will require an amendment to the lease which will need to be approved by the parties when finalized.”
The proposed London games are part of a bigger discussion with the Rams over whether they will stay in St. Louis and what it will cost to fix up the Edward Jones dome to make it in the top tier of NFL stadiums.
The CVC has offered to pay just under $60 million toward $124 million in stadium improvements. It’s not clear yet whether public money will be sought. The Rams have yet to respond publicly to the CVC offer.
