RT, really need to pick your brains here on the NFL ticket front.
I too got into American Football in the 80's & Miami Dolphins were & kind of still are my team, these were the days of Miami Vice, Dan Marino v Joe Montana & 'The Refrigerator' , nothing was cooler to a then 11/12 year old lad than all things American.
Roll on 35 years & I suppose I am just a fan of NFL but have only got back into the game over the last 18 months or so, I now follow the Texans, Patriots, Cowboys 49'ers & Redskins but still have a leaning towards Miami Dolphins,

Around the age of 15/16 I was still playing RL but for a short spell joined a locally organised group to maybe play a little Gridiron, in the end only actually going to some training sessions a few times & not playing a competetive game, it was TBF a pretty shoddy ramshackled mini league set up that didn't last due to poor organisation.

I digress, so back to my point. I would love to know more about ways in which to secure tickets for NFL London Games events as ideally I would like to get the best seats possible (general admission) up to around that £155 mark.
Again, when I looked at upcoming events it appeared not to be an option to buy 1 seat on it's own with only options of 2 or more ?

Please tell me in more detail about this season ticket thing & how to secure best seats, also if you have bought a season ticket but can only get to one game, can you sell on/sell back the other 2 games for example ?


it was a few years ago now i originally signed up on NFL uk website on waiting list, when i then got tickets the following year i got email asking to renew as priority customer which i did. The tickets come individually (or did) so you can sell them on if you don't want all the games. Noticed of the years that same faces and you often get chatting, but often seats where taken by new faces each game.

Sign up to NFL uk similar to our league and you get offered and news and can be asked to go on the waiting list.

i do something similar for athletics as well get early tickets and discount on best seats, we should do same for RL but as we all keep pointing out we cannot even sell out Leigh for an international.

Thanks RT, I presume then that ticketmaster is not the direct route for tickets even though it comes up top of page & more often than anywhere else ?
I think I will do as you suggest, 3 weekends in London is a bit of a stretch too far financially for me with hotels, travel etc, could maybe do 2 games a year.

Interestingly & as pointed out on Facebook, it is easier to buy an NFL jersey of any club than it is a RL jersey, Fanatics is massive & based in Manchester, they cover all of NFL, NBA, NHL, F1, Football, easier to get NFL gear than SL, NRL or Championship RL merchandise.

Just got back from the Chargers game. As you will see from my picture of Phil Rivers I'm a big charger fan and yesterday was the first time I've seen them play live.

Paid £60 for a ticket but struggle to pay +£40 for a RL event.... Ask why?

Well for my £60 I get:
3 hours of match time
4 hours of tailgate partying before the game
Access to the huge NFL store before and after the game
Free hot dog
Free subway sandwich
Take part in NFL games
Cheerleader druling
I got to meet an NFL player saturday
I got to meet legends of the game over May years

What else do I need to say?

Sad to say it but this weeks game looks like being the lowest attended full international at the KCOM to date. 20,324 is the lowest ever for a very weak NZ side in 2007, all others have been 23K+ but this time round the top tier isn't even on sale with a few days to go, and lots of green lights in the blocks that are on sale too.

If we can't sell an International game in RL mad Hull then we really are in trouble. The National side is the best it has been since the 90s, the Kiwi's and the Haka always have marketing appeal, yet we can't sell a 25k RL hotbed ground out.The RFL rely far too much on outdated tactics such as spamming e-mails out from what is probably an antique list of e-mail address and expecting casual fans to sign up for 'Our League' to get a promo code to get £5 off.

American Football is bigger than Rugby League, shocker.

The fact the NFL can sell out Wembley doesn’t surprise me, however what I do find impressive is that they have NFL games on the BBC, probably with a few million watching, that’s how they are going to build up a fan base to potentially launch a team over here.

We really need to get RL regularly on free to air TV, ideally this would be at least one Super League game per week. If this is going to take the value of the TV deal down too much to stomach get an NRL game, State of Origin all Internationals both with and without England on free to air tv, sky must only pay a pittance for coverage of games from downunder.

so seeing how everyone is raving over this NFL series being played in England, which is a country with no professional team, (and no Amateur league that I've heard of) surely ....surely.... we all agree that the Toronto wolfpack idea is a great idea then ....??
and i'll stop seeing people scream on facebook "should get rid and get a cumbrian team in ...!!!"..??

Surely even the most hard nosed northerner can see that having teams play a sport in a country that is in essence foreign to them is still a damn good idea of spreading the game....??

And also we cant underestimate how good terrestrial TV is for a sport.
I watched Channel 4's NFL coverage religiously back in the day, and loved all the great's, Marino, Montana, Elway, LT, and my favourite Barry Sanders the great Detroit lions running back. Its no coincidence that post 1997 I couldn't name single player.

So.... NFL is booming in a foreign country. The toronto wolfpack can only be good for RL, and the BBC needs to up its game for Rugby league.
oh yeah and heartland fans need to watch the sport.... I'm off to Anfield to watch England v New zealand anyone else...??

You may not have heard of it but the Amateur league is flourishing along with UNI and womens team plus non contact flag and juniors, i did play for the Manchester Titans for a period as left guard and it was bloody hard work, like has been said before it may be stop start but when there is action you have to be at 100% all the time otherwise you mess up and let you team down, which you do not want to do.

The Titan run several different teams aos the appetite is there people just need to tap into it.

I have attended everyone of the NFL games since the first in 2007, only cant make these as they are on consecutive sundays and i cant commit unfortunately due to work.

They are light years a head of anything we offer based on the match day expereince.

It is a real party atmosphere.

Considering premier sports once held the NRL rights, yeah it can't be that expensive. FTA could have went for the rights year but obviously chose not too.

Didn't sky recent get 5 year deal? NRL and SOO are not coming to FTA anytime soon.
