Sport-locker.net absolutely love the recent NFL showcase matches at Wembley in recent years, and there’s another one Sunday, October 27 between the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers!

And last night, NikeTwon London played host to an event that 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.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, 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.”
