Before the game they had a tailgate open to anyone with tickets outside the stadium. It was supposed to be like an "American" tailgate with American food. It was a good effort.
People had very interesting outfits on. Notice the Raiders fan in between the guys in this picture.
We knew our seats were low. But we didn't expect to be basically at field level. They were great seats but if possible, they were almost TOO low.
We were so close to the fire blasters it heated up our faces!
Ne-Yo did a pregame concert.
Both large American flags and British flags were presented.
Ne-Yo also sang the National Anthem.
The Jags mascot.
Here he was dancing to "What Does the Fox Say?"
Attendance was 83,559. Pretty impressive for the quality of a game we watched.
The game wasn't great, the 49ers won 42 to 10 but we had a fun time from the 2nd row!

Sarah was also in London and we had plans to meet for a beer after the game. It was a Sunday night and you'd expect places to be open later than 11pm but apparently London is a sleepy town and isn't. Instead we ended up at Victoria Station and did sneak one beer in before closing.
At least the food stalls were still open. The sandwiches made for a tasty late night snack.
