Giants announce special lineup of events & programming in London

LONDON

To celebrate their fans abroad, the New York Giants today announced a special lineup of events and programming in London, where the team will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Oct. 9.

The festivities open with a Kickoff Party hosted by Giants Legend Victor Cruz on Thursday evening, October 6 at The Horse and Guardsman, a traditional London pub in the West End. The pub will be outfitted in Giants branding and will feature appearances by Giants Legends, giveaways, music, trivia and other activities leading up to gameday.

In addition to daily programming from the pub, the Giants will tape a special London themed episode of "The Eli Manning Show," presented by Prizm Trading Cards, one of Panini America's most popular NFL trading card brands. The episode will feature segments on fashion and food with local influencers, celebrities and Giants Legends, and will air on the Giants YouTube channel on Saturday, October 8.

On Friday, October 7th, New York Giants players will participate in an NFL Flag "Community Day" with approximately 100 kids from local London schools. Players will lead the kids through 10 drills stations including throwing, catching, and tackling (flag-pulling) amongst other football activities.

Fans can also visit Starter.com to purchase exclusive London themed Giants apparel through a limited-edition capsule by Giants Legend Carl Banks. There will also be a Starter pop up at The Horse and Guardsman pub in London starting on Thursday for fans to pick up their purchase from Starter.com.

The Giants digital and social media platforms will provide exclusive content throughout the trip to London, presented by the Giants official airline partner, United Airlines.

This is the Giants' third time playing in London. In their 2007 championship season, they defeated the Miami Dolphins, 13-10, before 81,176 fans in Wembley Stadium, in the first regular-season NFL game played outside of North America. Nine years later, the Giants edged the Los Angeles Rams, 17-10, in Twickenham Stadium en route to a postseason berth. This year's game against the Packers, who will be the 32nd and last NFL team to play a game in London, will be held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
