In 2022, the Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Philadelphia Eagles in a regular season game. With the new 17 game schedule, this game will be considered an extra game so there is no definite advantage to the home team. Therefore, I feel that the game can and should be played in London next year. 

My main reason for this is personal. Having been born in Philadelphia, I have been a supporter of the Eagles but as an impressionable 11 year old at the time, the immaculate deflection in the 1972 playoffs made me become a Steelers fan as well. While I make it a point to watch on TV when the two teams play each other every four years, I have never seen them play in person. In fact, when they do play, I treat it almost as if it was the Super Bowl.  Now that I am advancing in years and living in England, I fear that I will never get that chance. 

This is why I am reaching out to American football fans, especially those in the UK, to make my dream come true. I am sure there are many other Steelers and Eagles fans across the country who would love to see their teams play in London and this would give them the chance to do so. Therefore, I am urging you to sign this petition to the National Football League in order to facilitate my dream. After all, you'll get to have a great day of football in London!
