The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was transformed yesterday when the football pitch was removed and replaced with the synthetic American Football playing surface.
The NFL were in town to hold their first event at the 62,062 capacity seater stadium when 150 young Londoners tried to win a place in the newly-formed NFL academy.
From September, the NFL Academy will officially open ajd offer 80 successful student athletes the opportunity to combine full-time education with life skills and intensive training in the sport under full-time professional coaches.
NFL UK posted footage of the stadium complete in NFL branding whilst also showing a glimpse of the huge dedicated locker rooms which were factored into the construction of the stadium.
Later this year will see the first NFL matches take place at the stadium when the Chicago Bears take on Oakland Raiders on Sunday 6 October, followed by the Carolina Panthers facing Tampa Bay Buccaneers a week later.
