ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – The St. Louis Rams and the Convention and Visitors Commission reached a deal to move one of their home games to London in 2012.
The terms of the agreement changes the Rams lease from allowing five non-football events in the Edward Jones Dome during the season to ten non-football events in 2012-2014. It also requires the Rams to pay the day’s wages to all seasonal workers for the missed home game.
In addition, it requires the Rams to host an event similar to the Cardinals Winter Warm-up before the start of the football season.
The agreement only allows the Rams to play the one London game later this year. Any future London games will also be subject to negotiation with the CVC.
A CVC official says they are already looking into booking an event at the dome on the day that the Rams are in London.
Tickets are on sale for the game against the New England Patriots on October 28 at Wembley Stadium.
