The St. Louis Rams recently announced that some home games will be played in London over the next three years - but it seems the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission thinks the move is a violation of the lease they hold with the team.
The CVC sent out the following statement this afternoon (link to the Symphony announcement inserted by St. Louis Public Radio for context):
Having the Rams play a game in London will elevate an awareness of St. Louis on the global stage, much as the Saint Louis Symphony’s upcoming tour will do.
That said, our lease with the Rams requires that the Rams play all their home games in the Edward Jones Dome. We immediately brought this to the Rams’ attention and are awaiting their reply.
We'll keep you updated as this story evolves.
