The NFL has temporarily postponed ticket sales for the Patriots-Rams game at Wembley Stadium in London next season.
The following statement is posted on the NFL UK's website:
"The reason for the postponement is to allow the Rams and their stadium authority time to finalise the technical amendments to the lease required under the terms of the Rams' commitment to London.
"The Rams have expressed optimism that a resolution is near, and we will provide updates as information becomes available."
The game is scheduled for Oct. 28 and is considered a Rams home game. The Rams agreed to give up a home game in each of the next three seasons to play in London.
On Friday, commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the London game during his press conference in Indianapolis.
"We're going to play the London games. We hope it will be with the Rams and the New England Patriots next year," he said. "That's what we planned … but there are issues that obviously are going to have to get resolved. We know there are discussions going on. We hope they will get resolved shortly."
The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission said the Rams' plan violates the team's stadium lease. In a statement released last week, the CVC said the lease requires the Rams to play all of its home games at the Edward Jones Dome.
