LONDON -- The 15,000 tickets available in the second general admission sale for the NFL regular-season game at Wembley Stadium sold out Friday in 30 minutes.
"Once again this demonstrates the huge interest in the sport in the UK," said Alistair Kirkwood, managing director of the NFL's United Kingdom office. "Fans here are excited to be able to see two teams of this caliber playing in the UK, and with a full Wembley Stadium, we expect the atmosphere to be electric when the Saints and Chargers take the field."
The NFL has committed to playing at least one game in the UK for each of the next three seasons.
