National Football League announces full schedule of 2018 London games

Share

The Jaguars, regulars on the London circuit, will "host" the Eagles in one game. The home of English football has now hosted 18 NFL games, with nearly 1.5 million fans attending those games.

The schedule also features three teams that haven't yet played in the International Series: The Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans.

"Since we last visited London in 2008, the NFL's popularity has continued to grow in the United Kingdom", said Chargers President of Business Operations A.G.

Team president Mark Murphy confirmed in November that the Packers were unlikely to play in London next season.

During the 2017 season, Eagles fans traveled extremely well to a pair of road games in Los Angeles against the Chargers and Rams, and will also be treated to a return trip to Southern California next season.

By the end of 2018, 29 of the NFL's 32 teams will have played a game in London and the games keep getting better and better.

The Ravens made their global debut this past September and they were thrashed, 44-7, by the Jaguars at Wembley Stadium. That game will be played in Week Six on Sunday, October 14. Anytime the team plays more than one time zone away, it leaves early (typically Thursday) to acclimate. New Orleans in Tokyo.

The NFL announced its slate of 2018 regular season games in London on Thursday, and the Washington Redskins aren't on the bill. This is one of the cornerstones of our vision for creating a world-class sports and leisure destination that will make Tottenham a hive of activity 365 days a year and drive the regeneration of one of the most deprived areas of London. But Tottenham, which is using Wembley as its own temporary home this season, doesn't want the burden of two National Football League fixtures when it is still settling into its new, unnamed stadium. "By playing games on three consecutive weeks, we will learn a lot, both from the fans buying tickets and attending games, and from a logistics and organizational standpoint".
