Los Angeles Rams to play home game in China in 2018

-

The Los Angeles Rams will play a home game in China in 2018 after playing games in London in 2016 and 2017, according to a tweet from Sam Farmer of The Los Angeles Times.

No further details about the game have been released, but it is part of an agreement the Rams have with the league to play three international games in three years as their new Inglewood stadium is built. A tweet from NFL Network’s Albert Breer also stated that the NFL was looking to have a game in Germany in 2017, so the league does appear quite serious about holding more games overseas and not just in London.

The question though, is why the Rams? Sure, running back Todd Gurley is a nice draw, but the team hasn’t made the playoffs since 2004, when Mike Martz was still coach. Why not send a perennial contender like the New England Patriots to China, or even the Green Bay Packers? Sure, the Rams now being in Los Angeles makes them a keen choice because of the lesser travel time, but the franchise has a lot of work to do in terms of reaching a higher level.

Despite that, however, the NFL brand is strong enough that sending any team to China would surely put butts in seats, so stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on this developing story.
