American Football NFL clash comes to London

American Football comes to Wembley

American Football comes to Wembley

Following the success of the two previous years, the NFL American Football league is back in London by popular demand. The clash of the titans takes place at the iconic Wembley Stadium on October 25th and if last year was anything to go by, the match will be a complete sell out with 83,000 fans descending upon the city.

Two of the biggest teams will take part in the mid-season clash which will see them fight for the chance to go on to the play-offs. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take on the New England Patriots at the London stadium. Both teams have a blistering track record behind them, between the two teams they’ve won 4 out of the 7 previous Super Bowls. There’s very little between the Buccaneers and the Patriots so the London match is set to be an absolute stormer.

The NFL American Football league enjoys a massive international fan base so the London match is expected to attract sports lovers from all over the U.K as well as Europe. Limited tickets are still available for the match plus some hospitality boxes. Opt for the latter and you’ll be treated to the best seat in the house plus a buffet prior to kick-off and a complimentary bar.

A sporting event of this kind doesn’t come round very often so for the chance see this quintessentially American spectacle complete with cheerleaders, hunky players and hot dog stands, get down to Wembley Stadium this October.

Is The Grand National the UK’s most famous horse race?

The Grand National, arguably the country’s most famous horse race, will set pulses racing early this April at the Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool.

This event has something for everyone, from those who can’t resist the lure of having a punt on an exciting tip to people who admire the beauty of a horse in full flow, as well anyone who just really likes hats.

From April 2nd to 4th, the finest thoroughbreds will be on display, along with the classiest of fashion and, of course, champagne will be flowing for all.

Much of the Grand National’s mystique is perhaps created by the fact that it has been running since 1839 and still manages to pull in the punters of all ages and backgrounds.

For anyone unfamiliar with the event, it is known as the one horse race which even the most reluctant of gamblers will be tempted to have a flutter on.

While there is no official dress code, many choose to pull out all the stops with their choice of attire, meaning limousine hire will be preferable for travelling to the event.
