Now that the last game of this year’s season of the NFL International Series at Wembley concluded only a few days ago, it’s time to look ahead at next year’s games, which have just been announced by the NFL.
Whilst Cricket, Rugby and Association Football have a long-standing tradition in the UK and, of course, in London, the NFL is becoming increasingly popular and enthusiasts don’t seem to mind that there is not a single UK team actually playing in the league. All that matters is the experience of this sport on a grand scale: live at Wembley Stadium.
Surely you enjoyed the 2014 season and cannot wait for next year. Perhaps you already stayed this year at the Best Western Palm Hotel, one of the best hotels near Wembley Stadium, when you saw one of the three games that took place at this magnificent stadium. By now you then know how comfy the beds and guest lounge are, how trendy the 24*7 bar and amazing the food at the restaurant is, how convenient the WiFi and hotel’s parking and how luxurious the walk-in showers and fitness centre feel.
With the new matches announced for the 2015 series, it’s time to book your room for next year. Here are the dates you need to keep in mind before booking. Check which team you most want to see and get your tickets sorted as soon as possible.
Week 4 - New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins - Sunday, October 4
Week 7 - Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars - Sunday, October 25
Week 8 - Detroit Lions vs. Kansas City Chiefs - Sunday, November 1
The Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets will play for the very first time in the UK, so whichever game you choose, you’ll see one team play that you have never seen before. It promises to be an exciting season, especially since the Dolphins and Jets, long-time rivals, are playing the first ever division game on UK soil.
On the other hand, of course, you may just book yourself into one of the best hotels near Wembley Stadium for an entire week and catch two games. The Best Western Palm Hotel London will gladly host you and your fellow NFL fans and friends for this once-in-a-lifetime chance at seeing two games almost back to back.
There’s plenty to do in London during the week as well and you will get to see a side of it that it only shows during the NFL International Series.
