NFL stars touchdown at Twickenham!

The stars of American football descend on Twickenham as the famous stadium hosts the clash between the Los Angeles Rams and the New York Giants this Sunday, 23 October.

The event, a first for both Hounslow and Richmond boroughs, is a unique combination of intense sporting rivalry as two of the major American football teams meet to gain a victory that will lead them to Super Bowl glory.

Hounslow Council is supporting the event by working closely with Richmond Council, Twickenham Stadium, the National Football League [NFL] and the RFU [Rugby Football Union].

With the match and all the pre and post-match activities set to bring in the crowds, organisers have put into place a procedure for changes to transport and road closures.

Further details can be found HERE and on the NFL matchday page

As well as the match, the NFL have been busy immersing themselves into the local community, by hosting a special NFL Kids day, which was supported by both Hounslow and Richmond Councils.

Local school children were able to take part in a competition to win a chance of going behind the scenes and meeting the players at the media day and residents from both Hounslow and Richmond signed up to be volunteers on matchday.

Councillor Corinna Smart, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Leisure, Hounslow Council, said: “This is a very exciting event indeed to have taking place on our doorstep.

“The success of the Rugby World Cup 2015 showed just how much people of all ages welcomed the chance to experience a major sporting event near to where they live.

“As always, the organisation around the match has been carried out to ensure that residents and visitor’s safety is a priority and any changes to transport or road closures around the stadium, are kept to a minimum. It should be a great spectacle!”
