FALCONS-LIONS LONDON CLASH TO TEST US MORNING TV INTEREST

0

NEW YORK: National Football League officials will use next year’s clash at London’s Wembley Stadium between the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons to test the American appetite for morning gridiron broadcasts. The NFL said Wednesday that kickoff for the October 26 game will be at 1330 London time, 0930 in the morning in the Eastern part of the United States where both clubs involved are based. Next year’s other two NFL games at Wembley Stadium, Miami against Oakland on September 28 and Dallas against Jacksonville on November 9, will feature 1800 London kickoffs and be shown during the usual US television match times.
