Raiders to play Seahawks in London Week 6 at Tottenham

14 January 2018

According to an announcement made by NFL UK, the Chargers will host the Tennessee Titans for a home game in Week 7 (Sunday, Oct. 21) or Week 8 (Sunday, Oct. 28) at London's Wembley Stadium.

The NFL announced its four worldwide games for 2018, three in London and one in Mexico City.

The NFL released a tentative schedule for the three matchups to be played in the United Kingdom next season, all of which will be at Tottenham's new stadium during the month of October.

"It was an honor to be part of the early wave of regular season games played overseas back then, and it is every bit the honor to represent the league in London this time around", A.G. Spanos, president of business operations, said in a statement. All three of the designated road teams will be making their first trip to London for a regular-season game.

The six teams chosen to play in London next season have been revealed.

"A key feature of our success is playing in iconic, world-renowned venues like Wembley and Twickenham, and we look forward to playing in what will be another incredible setting for NFL football at Tottenham's new stadium".

The current model for these payments requires money transfer companies to use pre-funded accounts across the globe for sourcing liquidity.

The Seahawks will take on the Raiders, Eagles will face the Jaguars and Titans will go head-to-head with the Chargers.

The NFL launched the International Series in 2007, with a regular season game between Miami and the New York Giants at Wembley Stadium.

"We very much hope there will be a franchise in London and we would very much like this stadium to be used for that club", Levy said. Spurs' new ground will stage one game in its first year of opening and in 2019 we look forward to going back to staging at least four National Football League games in London.

There will be three consecutive weeks of matches in London.

The NFL signed a 10-year deal with the Premier League club in 2015 to host two matches a season at Spurs' new stadium, due to be ready for the 2018-19 campaign, which features a retractable grass field with an artificial surface underneath. Tottenham Hotspur and the league will split gate receipts and food, drink and merchandise sales from NFL games there. We are able to contemplate something as audacious as having a team in London.

"The NFL holds huge value and importance to Wembley Stadium".
