Having been appointed the NFL's official hospitality sales agent for the Twickenham fixtures, Keith Prowse will be the primary source for hospitality experiences at the stadium.
The NFL will play two regular season games at Twickenham Stadium in 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings taking on the Cleveland Browns and the Arizona Cardinals playing the Los Angeles Rams. Due to the complexities of planning the NFL schedule, the order of the two games on October 22 and 29 has yet to be finalised and will be announced at a later date.
American Football has grown in popularity in the UK since the NFL hosted its first game in London in 2007. A decade on and a fan base of more than 13 million people in the UK means that tickets are in high demand.
Hospitality experiences will be available from £330 per person (+VAT) and are fully inclusive of premium ticket seating close to the 50 yard line, access to a private hospitality suite, pre-game buffet and complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks three hours before and one hour post match. There is also the opportunity for a meet and greet with NFL cheerleaders and an exclusive appearance from an ex-NFL player.
Andy Vinsen, chief operating officer for Keith Prowse said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as the official hospitality sales agent for the NFL London Games at Twickenham. Not only is American Football an exhilarating game, but when the NFL comes to town it's amazing how the capital lights up. Adding NFL to our inventory further strengthens our position as leaders within the hospitality sector.”
Alistair Kirkwood, managing director of NFLUK, said: “The NFL London Games have become a much-anticipated part of the UK sporting calendar and the Twickenham games will be a hot ticket. We are very pleased to have Keith Prowse helping us to reach out to those looking for a unique sporting experience.”
