 LONDON (AP) -The 15,000 tickets available in the second general admission sale for the NFL regular-season game at Wembley Stadium sold out Friday in 30 minutes.
Last month, the first 40,000 tickets for the Oct. 26 game between the San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints were sold in 90 minutes.
``Once again this demonstrates the huge interest in the sport in the UK,'' said Alistair Kirkwood, managing director of the NFL's United Kingdom office. ``Fans here are excited to be able to see two teams of this caliber playing in the UK, and with a full Wembley Stadium, we expect the atmosphere to be electric when the Saints and Chargers take the field.''
The NFL has committed to playing at least one game in the UK for each of the next three seasons.
The New York Giants and Miami Dolphins played the NFL's first regular-season game outside North America last year, when a sellout crowd of 81,176 packed Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28. The Giants won 13-10 win.
