Report: Rams and Chiefs to play in Mexico City next season

By Rachel Wold

According to a report by Televisa Deportes, the Los Angeles Rams are likely to host the Kansas City Chiefs in a Mexico game next season.

The Chiefs’ slate of games for 2018 calls for a road game with the Rams. As such, the Rams, according to their relocation agreement, must forfeit one home game per season to an international location, according to this report.

“As part of their relocation agreement, the Rams will play one game internationally next year as a home team,” NFL spokesman Michael Signora said, per Darin Gantt of Pro Football Talk. “However, we have not yet finalized the schedule of 2018 international games for London or Mexico at this time.”

Games abroad, whether played in London or Mexico, have garnered huge attendance numbers.

Both the Rams and Chiefs are currently in the playoffs. Therefore, it is a distant possibility that Mexico might be playing host to one or two of this year’s Super Bowl teams.

At this time, the exact date of the Mexico game has yet to be determined, per PFT.
