Super Bowl aces set for Belfast as NFL show touches down


By Adam McKendry

American football fans will be treated to a star-studded line-up at Monday's NFL UK Live event at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast.

The charity event, sponsored by Subway, will see Sky Sports NFL host Neil Reynolds conduct a Q&A session with some of the biggest names in American football.

On the bill are Super Bowl champion and six-time Pro Bowler Earl Thomas of the Seattle Seahawks and a two-time Pro Bowler in the form of the New York Giants' Landon Collins.

Also in attendance are Baltimore Ravens running back Alex Collins, who gained popularity when he revealed he took up Irish dancing to maintain his fitness, and two-time Super Bowl winning coach Rob Ryan.

The night will see all four quizzed by Reynolds on insider information and game insights you won't get anywhere else, while fans will also get a chance to meet the players afterwards.

"I can't wait to visit Belfast," Seahawks safety Thomas said.

"Neil (Reynolds) has already been in touch to tell me how passionate the Northern Irish fans are about the NFL and I just have to see it for myself."

Ravens running back Collins added: "I consider myself a bit of an Irish dancing expert! It's helped my football career by making me more explosive. I'm certainly looking forward to visiting Belfast to put my dancing skills to the test against the best!"

NFL UK have this year teamed up with Sport Relief and all proceeds from ticket sales will go to the charity.

Tickets are still on sale from Ticketmaster at £7 per person.
