ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Rams "home" game in London later this year is officially on after an agreement between the team and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The deal announced late Tuesday allows the Rams to play the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28. The Rams' lease agreement previously required that the team play all home games at the Edward Jones Dome.
In exchange, the Rams agreed to increase the number of football season weekends that the Edward Jones Dome can be booked for other uses. The team also agrees to pay temporary game-day employees the wages they would have earned if the game had been played in St. Louis.
The Rams also want to play games in London in 2013 and 2014. No deal has been worked out on those games.
