Report: London calling Bears

The Bears are reportedly heading back to London for the first time since 1986.

WMVP (AM 1000) was the first to report that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will “host” the Bears at Wembley Stadium sometime during the 2011 season. ESPN’s Adam Schefter and WDAE in Tampa are also reporting that the Bears will return to London for the first time since defeating the Dallas Cowboys 17-6 in the inaugural American Bowl game.

Last year the Bears celebrated the 25th anniversary of their last Super Bowl championship. Later this year, the Bears can commemorate the 25th anniversary of four Bears players recreating the iconic Beatles “Abbey Road” album cover.
