This Sunday’s NFL fixture between St. Louis Rams and the New England Patriots has been immortalised with a stone on Wembley Way, following the announcement Wembley will be hosting NFL International Series matches through to 2016.
In a first for Wembley and the NFL, the unique stone will be laid to commemorate the success of what is now one of America’s great sporting exports. Overseeing will be six of the St. Louis Rams cheerleaders who will act as ambassadors for the NFL whilst in London.
The stone will be in good company - it sits in pride of place amongst stones dedicated to football, sport and music fans from around the world, including the 1966 World Cup Winning side and modern icons such as Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard.
NFL fans can also get their hands on a Wembley Stone and take their place amongst legends on Wembley Way.
Christa, Captain of St. Louis Rams cheerleading squad, said: “Coming to England is always a privilege anyway, but to be part of an event which commemorates the NFL is amazing and a real honour."
