My wife was saving up for these for me as a birthday gift (my b-day is in mid September) ever since they announced it. They were not cheap so I know what you mean, definitely wouldn't have been able to afford them otherwise.

I'd be ok with paying it, it's a once in a lifetime thing almost, but people I'm going with aren't as harcore NFL fans so don't want to pay for the club seats.. waiting nervously for Thursday...

You'll have to be quick on Thursday. Like bang on 10am. Good luck my friend! I hope you get them.

Hope you got a good camera.  I'd love to see pictures from a fan.  I have no idea how and where to load that stuff up to, but I'm sure Nadine can help out in that department.  If nothing else, you can upload to your profile I guess. 

 

Anyhow, enjoy it, friend.

I was planning on taking a few pics so I'll upload them or link to a online gallery when I do.

I've got a GoPro so I'll probably take that and get some cool shots. I could just re-save the files as low res .jpgs and post them in a titled thread after the game?

My daughter just happens to be scheduled to be in London when the game is on.  she's going to try and get tickets if it's not too $$

The cheaper tickets go on sale on Thursday at 10am UK time. (I believe that is 5am eastern time in the US). 

I think the cheapest tickets will be about £40, right up in the heavens, but Wembley is a good stadium and it would still be great. £40 currently equates to about $57 ish... By the time you pay for the postage and handling fees etc you are probably looking at about $65.

To Wembley? Yeah a few times, once for the Olympics to watch Mexico vs Senegal in 2012 and another time to see an England friendly.

It's a good stadium. Most seats will offer a good view of the field, even if you are a tad high up.

I'm glad you guys get to see the Colts, but personally, I hate that they're playing overseas.  I think this means I have to watch the game on the internet, right?  At least it's not a home game.

 

Sorry to be a downer in your happy thread, but I'm against expansion.  IMO, it's the NFL's version of the golden goose.

I actually kind of agree that a London based team is a bad idea for the NFL.... Imagine flying from San Fran or LA to London or vice-versa to play a single game, then fly all the way back to play at home or in Seattle?

For any of you that dont know, London to Denver is a 10 to 10 and a half hour flight.... San Fran and LA are at least another 2 - 2 and a half hours from Denver. So you're talking about a 13 hour flight... Long way.

English soccer teams are known to do this if they are playing an eastern Russian team in a european cup game, but this happens once or maybe maximum twice in a whole year.... Not potentially every other week during the season.

 If I recall correctly, previous games played in the UK have been Nationally televised, but it's like 9 a.m. eastern

I think I read somewhere that it will be streamed online. 

Though I dont personally see a problem with that?... Just get an HDMI and plug it into your tv..... derp?....

This will be my 3rd trip too, once for the aforementioned Jags/49ers and I also saw Preston in the play off final last year. 

 

I like it very much as a stadium, as much as it got bad press it's a very impressive facility.

Bunch of engineers (except for my daughter), it's some kind of an annual European Microwave show or something.  Last year it was in Paris.  I do envy her the places she gets to go.  Her boss is so nice to her.  She's lucky for sure.

 

She was already excited to go to London because she spent a semester there when she was in college and loves the city.  Seeing things from the 'other side' now.  No mice infested flat for her this time

Congrats to all who'll be there to attend the game. Yes, please take some great pics of you guys if you can & upload. Nothing better than enjoying a Colts game with fans of our own ilk & seeing those pics on the forum.

 

Enjoy the game & yourselves, compadres! :)

Hopefully I'll see some of you there!

I was trying to talk the wife into a London trip and catch the game while there. Somehow I am painting the entire house and getting new flooring instead...........:scratch:

Hilarious!  My buddies and I meet in Indy for a game every year.  We actually floated the idea of going to London.  Then my wife and kids said they'd be going too.  So, that's out.

 

At least I don't have to paint the house.

We've all been there my friend...

I wanted a new 50inch, 4000k TV whereas what we actually got was a new carpet in our hall way and I had to install more flooring in our attic.

3 Tickets secured, up in the gods but at least it's at the halfway line. 

 

For anyone going that's not from London and coming from North of London I highly recommend parking near Stanmore Tube and getting there that way. Plenty of side streets within walking distance that are free to park on.

I just bought mines too!

 

Section 506, way up, just the way i wanted! (cheaper price and the experience of such a big stadium).

 

The buying process was actually quite smooth and stress-free.

 

Now i have 6 months to figure out the flights and hotels.. And shopping in london with my girl? Bacruptcy here we come! Wooohooo!

Glad you guys got your tickets :) 

Seriously though we should organise a few Colts Forum members drinks or something before the game. We can do all that a bit closer to the date but it would be cool to all meet up, especially with anyone making the trip across the pond too.

    • Autocorrect got 'em......
    • Looks like the Colts will get 2-3 starters from the 2019 class. Willis has been the best pick so far but Oke hasn’t been terrible.  He needs to keep working on his game to improve on his deficiencies and he will be alright.  The wildcards are Rock and Campbell. One of them will come thru and be a contributing starter. If both work out this is one heck of a draft class. 
    • Yes, I'm willing to give it another year to really judge this class.   I think RYS and Oke can be solid starters for several years to come on this team.  The covid offseason didn't help them at all.     We got good value from Willis later in the draft.  I think we've seen him pretty much hit his ceiling, but he's a solid player and think he can remain solid for a while.   Campbell is a stud athlete and has just gotten downright unlucky with injuries.  He's a high character guy and a solid worker.  If he comes back and can stay healthy, I expect him to be a big contributor to the O.     Speed was very solid on STs last year and I expect him to get LB snaps this coming season, especially if Walker leaves in FA which I think is pretty much inevitable at this point.     I know there were some rumors last year that Banogu wasn't performing well in practice (well 'Flus said this to the media).  I am not ready to give up on him yet, but I don't think he's going to pan out to what Ballard had in mind.     Tell looked very promising as a rookie.  Hopefully when he comes back from opt-out he'll be on the right trajectory and can contribute again.   Green, Barton and Patterson are all still in the league and frankly as 6th and 7th round players, it isn't like we were expecting much from them.     Then, let's not forget we got Ashton Dulin as an UDFA that year.  He's been very solid on STs and though not given much opportunity at WR, he's shown speed and ability to extend the field.  I won't be shocked to see him make the 2021 roster and continue to excel on STs while seeing a bit of an increased role as a WR.
    • There's no doubt that 2020 wasn't the best for the 2019 class. Rock, Banogu and Okereke either stagnated or regressed in their development. They've all got big 2021 seasons ahead. Bobby in particular I'd like to see emerge as a quality starting MLB in this league, he has the ability, but his play was mediocre last year.    I think with Banogu, Ballard just blundered here with this pick. I think he'd admit that, we saw in the 2020 draft him going for experienced established collegiate stars in Pittman and Taylor.  He had the idea of playing Banogu as a hybrid SAM but that never came to fruition, probably because they didn't exactly have a plan or a defined role for him. Now were just have two 3rd down speed rushers (Turay) vying for the same limited number of snaps. So even if Banogu starts improving, he might still have trouble seeing the field. I think if he had any sort of trade value, Ballard would just trade him, or he will just drop him out of the 53, and let someone take him off the roster like what happened with Basham. But hopefully we see something from him this year.   Willis as pretty good this year. He is seems like a hard worker and is improving each season. I like him as the starting SS.   I was really disappointed for Parris Campbell. In the Jags and opening few snaps of the Vikings games, he looked really good and a big part of the offense. The thing about Campbell is that its not because he is injury prone. All his injuries have been in different areas of the body in different circumstances. Knee, hand foot, hernia,.. just downright rotten luck. Hopefully we get him back and playing at a high level.
    • Ok that's a good point man. I'm curious about your opinion on this one. What if you had a guy like Okereke doing James Farrior like things? You've got a good FS. I see both sides of this argument. It's an interesting conundrum. Solid push every single down with a little trickery. Also if you have a solid running game it makes play calling so much easier and whoever you put in there is going to have an easier job. Just theorizing man.
