The Barrowboy & Banker, located a stone's throw from the London Bridge, will serve as the Seahawks' home pub in the city. The establishment will feature a number of Seahawks-centric events, including a trivia night on Thursday, a Blue Friday rally on Friday, and an in-depth game preview from members of the Seahawks Radio Broadcast on Saturday before serving as a place to watch Sunday's Seahawks game against the Oakland Raiders.
To celebrate the Seahawks' international following, we've created a large 3-D freestanding number '12' that will be set up around some of the city's most iconic locations. Fans are encouraged to snap a photo in front of the giant '12' and post a photo on social media using the hashtag #12sEverywhere.
