Rams lease prohibits 2016 London game
ST. LOUIS (AP) The NFL has scheduled a Rams home game in London next season, but the operator of the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis says the team’s lease agreement prohibits it.
The NFL on Wednesday announced three games in London. The Rams would play a not-yet-decided NFC East team Oct. 23 at Twickenham Stadium.
There is uncertainty whether the Rams will even belong to St. Louis by then. Owners of the Rams, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders are all exploring moves to Los Angeles, perhaps as early as next season.
In a statement, the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission says terms of the team’s lease agreement require all home games, other than preseason, to be at the dome.
A message seeking comment from the Rams wasn’t immediately returned.
This story has been corrected to Edward Jones Dome throughout.
