Clash of the Vikings
As a result of their naming, Yorkshire Vikings will meet the Minnesota Vikings at Headingley later this month.
Yorkshire County Cricket Club are delighted to announce they have agreed a tie up with the NFL and the Minnesota Vikings to stage an event at Headingley on Wednesday March 27.
Following the successful launch of the Yorkshire Vikings brand, the Club was contacted by the NFL to stage a fans’ event at Headingley Cricket Ground and after a number of discussions both parties have agreed an event on Wednesday March 27.
For any Vikings fans living in Yorkshire, a ticket only event on the evening is planned to give fans a chance to meet, question and chat to high profile players.
The Minnesota Vikings will tour the UK across numerous dates in early spring. The tours will aim to promote Sky Sports' series about the Minnesota Vikings, aptly named 'Inside the Vikings' which will air on April 3. The two shows will help viewers build up to the UK visits of the Vikings, who host the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 29, and the Jaguars, who are at home to the San Francisco 49ers on October 27. The shows will feature an exciting mix of classic game footage, new, features and interview
Timings and ticketing information for the Vikings clash at Headingley are all to be confirmed, watch this space for Viking action!
