Costs are still to be determined and are no additional costs to Visit London in respect of the National Football League decision to host a competitive match in London. The NFL game is a major coup for the capital, and the event will be integrated into the planned overseas and domestic promotional activity of Visit London. The location of the game will be announced on 2 February, and venues that have been considered include Wembley and Twickenham.
