NFL: 'field presents unnecessary risks to player safety'
(FOX NEWS) – The National Football League announced Tuesday that next week’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams will be moved from Mexico City to Los Angeles due to an unsafe playing surface.
In a statement, the NFL said the playing surface at Estadio Azteca “does not meet NFL standards for playability and consistency and will not meet those standards by next Monday.”
Mark Waller, the NFL’s executive vice president in charge of overseeing the league’s international growth, blamed “the combination of a difficult rainy season and a heavy multi-event calendar of events at the stadium [that] have resulted in significant damage to the field that presents unnecessary risks to player safety and makes it unsuitable to host an NFL game.”
