    Yes part wishful thinking but also I don’t think it’s sutainable.

    The number of games has dropped to 3. From what I’ve heard a lot of the players aren’t happy about going there either from the west coast as it’s a massive inconvenience and can have a knock on effect for a couple of weeks.

    I suspect once each team has done it once or twice the novelty wears off and the NFL upstairs different avenues.

  • :greetingsearthling: fellow 12's

    Wife and I were lucky enough to travel to Seattle in Septemeber 2017 and got tickets to the 49ers game - wow, what an experience! Even though it wasn't maybe the best of games, the match day atmosphere was amazing, And Seattle is a beautiful city.

    So excited that us UK 12's will get the chance to see the Seahawks in London! Shame it is not at Wembley Stadium as a much higher seating capacity but the new stadium looks great. Will be a big demand for tickets for that game, I think.

    Hope lots of 12's make the trip over the pond - you'll have a great time!

    Go 'Hawks.

  • Lame
    But even worse for Oakland. They get screwed out of a home game. Bad for their ticket sales too.

  • Ignorance prevails..I am such at the moment...

    What is the difference in location from Wembly and where they have it scheduled?
    Is there a way for them to change the venue to a place that would be sold out like Wembly? of course that would have to include the proper hotel and foods etc available....maybe even a pub or two.

    Is there ample transport available to the venue and actually both venues for all the fans? I know nothing about the UK. (cept what is shown in cartoons.)

    I think the biggest difference is about 30,000 seats.
    90k at Wembly vs 60k at the new place.
    With “X” amount of tickets already spoken for by season ticket holders, there will be far fewer tickets available for public sale.
    Approximately 30k fewer.
    ITS A GREAT TIME TO BE A SEAHAWK FAN !

  • Also the Tottenham ground is a bitch to get to. I'll most likely walk there but there are no tube stations really close by. There is an overground station but that isn't well served. 4 trains an hour normally.

  • Congratulations to all of the Seahawk fans abroad that finally get to see their team play at "home". It must be as exciting as it can be!
    Remember, we get real loud when we are on defense.
    Road trip! My plan is to attend.

  • Seahawks forced their way into away game in London

    The Seattle Seahawks are always crediting their fans for a true homefield advantage and they can thank the 12's again for saving the day on their trip to London. In other words, if the Oakland Raiders and their fan base are looking for someone to blame for losing one of their precious few home games remaining before the team moves to Las Vegas, they can point that hate directly at the 12's.

  • Been wanting to take the family over for some time now and this is the perfect reason to get off my butt! Got the time off work and we are hoping to see the game and spend a week or two in the area!

    Any of you that are local to the area willing to PM some travel tips? :)

  • Ticket news in about 5 minutes for UK based Hawks. :irishdrinkers:

    EDIT: Spurs' new ground isn't finished, so Seattle-Oakland tickets are on sale in April - with a priority presale for renewing ST-holders, who can do so in respect of the Wembley games on 30th January. Non-ST folk from 15th Feb.

    Hah, well, you know you probably need to get tickets to the other games to have a reasonable chance of nabbing priority pre-sale tickets for the Seahawks.

  • I'm not as nervous as a lot of fans about ticket availability personally.

    As long as you're on the computer the moment they go on sale I reckon you'll be OK.

    I think Twitter is quite upset because of the phrase "limited number" and each ST account can only get four tickets max for the Hawks game, when some appear to have been buying seven tickets previously - so their group of friends or whatever all used one account, and now three will miss out or need to find tout tickets.

    I'm with you though - I will be by the computer on Jan 30th and April-the-whatever. :)

  • Booked our flights last week. Arrive Oct. 10, return Oct. 18. Tickets will be a challenge, but worst case scenario, we spend a week in London/Paris etc. and could watch the game at the local pub. That being said, no way in heck I'm going to not have tickets, somehow someway. When they go on sale online, hoping it's while I'm at work, so can have a couple co-workers try as well. Might as well have 3 people trying :)

    Sure I remember them saying the contingency plan is to move the game back to the US rather than Wembley.

  • I wouldn’t worry, my understanding is the stadium will be done in plenty of time.

    It’s just they have to have a contingency in place for worst case scenarios.

  • Seems like Wembley would be a no brainer as a back up, unless there is already an event that day.
    On another note, can you suggest a decent area to stay in London that isn't super expensive. We plan on staying the first couple nights in London, then stay with our friend Deano fri/sat/sun, then pop down to Paris for a couple nights (mon/tue after the game). Near "downtown" London rooms were like 3 bills. Not looking to do that, though we will be splitting the room in London w/friends so we don't need a dump :)


    Much appreciated. I did a bunch of expedia searches, just don't know the area, what would be a good area of London to stay and have good access to some sightseeing w/a quick cab/train or bus ride.

    Here’s some helpful advice that I wrote for another poster :)

    The great thing about London is how accessible just about everywhere is, the underground (underground trains) is probably the best system in the world, it’s efficient, quick and can get you just about anywhere in London quickly.

    It’s fairly straight forward to use as well, within 2 days you should be used to how it works and how to get about efficiently. It’s pretty cost effective as well.

    I’d avoid taxis as car traffic is London is hideous, not quite LA bad but it’s awful.

    Hotels are also in abundance in London, they have everything for every budget. Expect £100 a night for something average but acceptable. Air BnB and serviced apartments are also an option, for me personally, I tend to go with serviced apartments as I like the space and not being cooped up in one room for a long amount of time. There’s plenty in Canary Wharf (the business district) and also plenty of travel links in and out, it’s not the most central location but I really like the area as a base and you’ll be in central London very quickly! Just an idea.

    In terms of what to do, you’re pretty spoilt for choice in London as there’s so much to do. My recommendations would be -

    Go on the London Eye, you get pretty good views and it’s always fun.

    Visit London Dungeons (about 1 minute away from the eye!), it’s really, really good. Me and my wife still laugh about when we went a couple of years ago, it’s really, really well done!

    If drinking is your thing bars are great in London. There’s a casino in Leicester Square (you can’t miss it!) that has a very large sports bar but more importantly a pretty well hidden bar that has a large balcony that overlooks Leicester Square and is great for people watching. We can spend hours up there!

    I’d also highly recommend china town for everything from food, to drinking, to people watching or to just have a walk around. It is ‘slightly’ seedy in parts of China town, a few sex shops and brothels but the area is totally safe. I’d have zero problem with my wife walking around there on her own at midnight.

    London zoo is worth a visit as well if that’s your thing. I don’t agree with zoos in general but it’s meant to be very good

    The early season ticket holder window starts in august and the nfl think that only 90% of current ticket holders will get tickets. This means even you paid to get in the advanced window you may still miss out.

    I cant see many making it to general sale.

    The BYE will very likely take place in week 7 after the Raiders game, so a bit later than usual.
