Update: The Vikings will get some action in England before their new stadium is complete in 2016.
A Vikings source confirmed the team will play a game in London during the 2013 season.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported today first that a London game for the Vikings will be announced at the owners meetings Tuesday in Chicago.
The game would be played next September against a to-be-determined opponent.
Schefter also said the Vikings might be in line for more games. The game would count as a Vikings home game next season, meaning it would only play seven regular-season games the Metrodome.
