The Rams will play their "home" game in London later this year after settling a lease dispute with the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The deal announced late Tuesday allows the Rams to play the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28. The lease had required the team to play all home games at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.

In exchange, the Rams agreed to increase the number of football season weekends that the dome can be booked for other uses. The team also will pay temporary employees the wages they would have earned by working the game in St. Louis.

Tickets for this year's London game went on sale Feb. 6.

The Rams also want to play games in London in 2013 and 2014. No deal has been worked out on those games.
