The NFL's U.K. arm already has sold out its tickets for the Minnesota Vikings' game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in London.

But the Vikings say any fans in the U.S. who want to make the trip will have their chance to attend the Sept. 29 game at historic Wembley Stadium.

"The NFL U.K. has sold out all tickets that were available in the U.K. for the Vikings vs. Steelers," Steve LaCroix, the Vikings' vice president of sales and marketing, said in an email on Saturday.

"The Vikings have secured a significant number tickets for our fans. We will have tickets for all Vikings fans who want to attend the game in London. We will provide additional ticket information in the near future."

The NFL announced in October the Vikings have given up one of their 2013 home games to make the trip.

The league will have two games in London for the first time, with the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers to meet on Oct. 27.
