Rams set to play Patriots in London

The St. Louis Rams and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission will finalize an agreement to their current lease that let the Rams play home games in London in each of the next three seasons.  The Rams are scheduled to play New England on Oct. 28 at Wembley Stadium. The CVC pressed the Rams on the issue since the terms of the lease prohibit the Rams from playing home games anywhere but at the dome. It appears a compromise has been reached.

This also comes at a time when the Rams and the CVC are exchanging proposals over possible upgrades to the Dome as part of the lease agreement. The CVC submitted their proposal to the team on Feb. 1. If the Dome is not considered a “first tier” facility, the Rams could break their lease after the 2014 season. There is speculation that Rams owner Stan Kroenke would move the team back to Los Angeles.
