Rams-Chiefs Mexico City Game At Risk Due To Poor Field

Rams-Chiefs Mexico City Game At Risk Due To Poor Field

The NFL won't play south of the border in 2018 after all.

Given the level of hype and excitement over the upcoming Monday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs, Adam Schefter revealed some news that will come as a letdown to almost everyone who calls himself or herself a football fan.

This single game between the Rams and Chiefs is perhaps the most anticipated game of the entire regular season among National Football League fans given that it pits two likely Super Bowl contenders against each other in a preview of sorts.

"As a result, we have determined that moving the game is the right decision, and one that we needed to announce now in order to allow our teams and fans to make alternate arrangement".

Soccer games and concerts have left the field a mess.

The league announced the extraordinary decision today, six days before one of the most-anticipated regular-season games of the year.

But for a game between the Rams and the Chiefs?

Azteca stadium has a hybrid surface made up of both grass and synthetic materials, according to reporter Peter King.

"The field is not in the best condition and that concerns me for the next tournament", Cruz Azul coach Pedro Caixinha said.

On August 16, stadium authorities admitted that the field was not in good shape and promised to improve it shortly.

It's been an extremely hard week in the Los Angeles area, with first the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks that left 12 people dead and then massive wildfires that have left two people dead and have destroyed tons of homes and have been burning since last week. But the league consulted with the players' association and local officials before deciding it couldn't risk the players' health on a damaged field.
