NFL Fever Hits NikeTown London

NikeTown London played host to an evening of NFL action last night in the heart of London ahead of the game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers at Wembley on Sunday, Oct. 27. 

The event featured a Q&A session and meet-and-greet with Jacksonville Jaguars players Cecil Shorts III, Paul Posluszny, Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne, Johnathan Cyprien and Tyson Alualu. In addition the Jaguars’ cheerleaders and mascot Jaxson de Ville treated guests to a live performance.

49ers legends Guy McIntyre and Bryant Young, alongside former Jaguars players Fred Taylor, Tony Boselli and Jeff Lageman entertained the crowd and ensured that UK fans were able to get closer to the NFL than ever before.

The evening was capped off in memorable style, as guests were able to enjoy a special photo opportunity with the Lombardi Trophy.

“There is such a great buzz here at NikeTown,” said Jacksonville Jaguars player Cecil Shorts III. “It is always fantastic to meet our fans in the UK and feel the passion they have for the NFL. We are really looking forward to gearing up for Sunday’s game.”
