This per Ed Bouchette and Jamison Hensely via Twitter. They'll be the "road" team, so don't worry about losing a home game. :helmet:

My wife and I, along with another couple (who are steelers fans) are planning a trip to London and Scotland next July. I may just have to push back my trip a few months!

10-16-2012, 07:28 PM
I'm glad our UK friends get a chance to see the Steelers play next year. I'm just selfish and want all the games here LOL.

Atleast we aren't losing a home game though which is good. Bad thing is like Ktrain said we can't win on the road. LOL

Would prefer it to have stayed in the U.S.

I'm not a huge fan of these kinds of games.

Not crazy about it,but it is what it is. More concerned about the schedule following it, they say it tough to adapt to a west coast game,what is it going to be like for a eastern continent game?? lol

Of Course.

Anyways with the defense at this rate, Ponder will look like the best ever thing the Brits have seen in American Football.

And if Goodell really wants to **** off Steeler fans, he would put the game on a Sunday 1Pm time in the UK lol!

Anybody going to try to make this game? The wife myself and another couple that are Steelers fans are going

Neither am I. I hate it. Some things are fine the way they are. The NFL is one of those things.

05-10-2013, 12:26 PM
We should have the home field crowd behind us. Besides maybe there's some resentment against the actual Vikings who invaded England 1200 years ago. LOL

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who will be facing the Minnesota Vikings at Wembley Stadium on September 29, will be the special guest next Tuesday (July 2) at the first in a new and occasional style of NFLUK fan forum. An exclusive group of 30 fans – who on this occasion must be members of the Union Jax – will get to spend time with Big Ben, discussing his NFL career, how he feels about playing in London and even see him describe and diagram the construction of a Super Bowl-winning touchdown.

yep am going on tues to meet the man himself ..can not wait

06-28-2013, 06:57 PM
This should be broadcast somewhere so I can watch it. Sucks not being inside of the Steeler TV area.

Yes, I think he posts here from time to time. Sure looks like him.

07-04-2013, 03:42 PM
Ben should have told the NFL to get bent. Let Perrish Cox, Aaron Hernandez, or the habitual drunk Jared Alllen promote that game.

I just hate the idea of regular season games being played in London, and I'm just glad the Steelers didn't have give up a home game yet.......

07-04-2013, 05:30 PM
i dont get why some are so against playing over here at the end of the day the vikings fans should be the most pissed ..it was there home game or if you was traveling to the viking ground to see them for this game ..the cash cow that is NFL saw a sell out game in secs and that it was 90.000 seat sell out with all but a few here and there left ..i have been with the group that started in the 80s comeing over to the states to watch the steelers who i fave fallen in love with so i started at 3 rivers and now heinz field ..so i keep seeing i hate the london Game ..what the steelers over there and all that ...there a massive fan base over here in europe i have had fan clubs from germany ..poland ..holland ..france all contact me to ask what happening and can we all meet up i have had lots of active US service men doing the same as thay are all comeing over for 4/5 days to take in london and game game with the team thay love who thay have to watch on TV each week as do i here in the uk so we get to see the team we love on our out front door the game is massive over here and in europe ok the world league did not go that well but when ever a team came over even for a preseaon game sell out ..thay saw a market and now 2 game a year .. and even if thay put a team here ..yes i get a season ticket ..just so i can see the steelers on the off chance thay come over and then we get the promo stuff like ben comeing over this week and us 30 meeting him was superb there another one later in the month when 5 players are comeing over from all 4 team ..think roman foster is poping over ..ben said on tues hes going back to say that there is fans over here and not just other team fan in wembly. the steelers will never give up a home game as it sells out and you only come over when your ground Does not sell out ..ie jags and vikings not selling out and now over here thay have a sell out .....septs game will be a home game for ben and the boys there will be a sea of black and gold
