LONDON (AP) -The first regular season NFL game outside North America is shaping up as a hot ticket.
The first 40,000 tickets for the Oct. 28 game between the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants at the new Wembley Stadium sold in 90 minutes Wednesday.
``The speed in which such a large number of tickets were snapped up ... demonstrates the great excitement and appetite for the game in this country,'' said Alistair Kirkwood, managing director of NFL UK. ``We know that the last few tickets available in this first batch will be gone very soon.''
The first batch of tickets went to fans in Britain and the rest of Europe selected randomly from registered ticket requests.
Sales in the United States to Giants and Dolphins fans are expected to begin within a week. Further tickets will be released to fans in Britain next month.
About 10,000 fans are expected to travel from the United States, a fraction of the anticipated sellout crowd of 90,000.
Prices range from about US$90 (?66.50) to US$180 (?133), using a pricing structure similar to this weekend's FA Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea.
