Last week, the NFL announced that the St. Louis Rams would play a regular season game in London in each of the next three seasons. All three games would be considered Rams home games, meaning that they would only play seven games in St. Louis during each of the next three seasons.
The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission released a statement on Friday voicing the commission's objection to this scheduling change.
The commission acknowledged that the Rams playing overseas would "elevate an awareness of St. Louis on the global stage." But it added, "Our lease with the Rams requires that the Rams play all their home games in the Edward Jones Dome."
