It won't be Sean Payton's first time in Wembley stadium

And the amateur game in the UK had some rather famous participants, including Leicester Panthers team-mates Martin Johnson and Sean Payton. Johnson played tight end and defensive end for the Panthers before turning to professional rugby and World Cup glory with England, while Payton played quarterback before going on to become head coach of the New Orleans Saints – via assistant coaching stops in Dallas and New York (Giants).

In 1988, he played in the United Kingdom for the Leicester Panthers. Payton landed the starting quarterback role for the Panthers and quickly gave evidence of his superb knowledge for the game; Payton led the Panthers to a touchdown on the first possession. That same season saw the Panthers go unbeaten to the semifinals of the British League, eventually losing to the Manchester Allstars.
