ESPNChicago.com is reporting the Bears will travel to London, England to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Wembley Stadium.
This will be the Bucs second trip to London. The last trip they had in 2009 was one to forget. A 35-7 loss to the New England Patriots.
The Bears haven’t been to London since they played a preseason game there against the Cowboys in 1986.
The Bucs didn’t sell out any of their home games, therefor blackouts were issued in the local area. This game certainly won’t be a blackout. A sold out crowd will be expected.
The Bears should be excited to get an opportunity to showcase their talents outside of the United States. Last season’s match-up against the Bills in Toronto helped them do that and it turned out to be like a home game for them. Hopefully the Bears fan will show up in London.
