Def Leppard To Help Kickoff NFL Game In London
On Sunday, September 28th, the Oakland Raiders and the Miami Dolphins will square off in 2014’s first regular season game outside of the United States, in the United Kingdom. The game will be played at Wembley Stadium with the help of Def Leppard.
The greatly-admired 80’s rock group will provide pre-game duties for one of the first international bouts the NFL is holding this upcoming season. London will be home to this matchup, plus the Falcons and Lions during week 8 and the Jaguars and Cowboys in week 10.
It’s very cool to see not only the NFL reaching out to various demographics, but even rock bands as well. Hopefully CBS will provide coverage of the band performing, so don’t forget to tune in.
