LONDON -- Tickets for the NFL's annual regular-season game in London went on sale Monday after the St. Louis Rams solved an issue regarding their stadium lease, clearing the way for them to host games in Britain.

The general admission ticket sales were halted last week because the NFL's plans to have the Rams host one game per season at Wembley over the next three years clashed with the team's lease on Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.

However, NFL UK said on its website that the issue had been resolved and ticket sales would begin at 2 p.m. local time on Monday.

"We're going to play the London games," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Friday. "We hope it will be with the Rams and the New England Patriots next year. That's what we planned. ... But there are issues that obviously are going to have to get resolved. We know there are discussions going on. We hope that will get resolved shortly."
