LONDON (AP) -- Ticket sales for the NFL's annual game in London have been suspended while the St. Louis Rams try to solve an issue regarding the lease on their stadium.
NFL UK says in a statement on its website that the Rams "have expressed optimism that a resolution is near" and it expects the ticket sales to resume shortly.
The Rams are scheduled to host the New England Patriots at Wembley on Oct. 28 and have agreed to give up a home game in each of the next three seasons to play in London.
However, that apparently clashes with the team's lease on the Edward Jones Dome, where the Rams play their regular home games.
NFL UK said the Rams are working to "finalize the technical amendments to the lease required under the terms of the Rams' commitment to London."
