  • National Football League releases schedule for 2018 games in London

By the end of the 2018 season, the only teams not to have played a game in London will be the Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers.

Kickoff time has not been announced. The other two will take place at Wembley Stadium, English soccer's national stadium, on October 21 or 28. The Raiders, who have played in Mexico City each of the last two seasons, will play in London for the first time since a 38-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins during the 2014 season.

This year, with no global games and a full home schedule, the itinerary is much more manageable.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell added: "We continue to be very excited by the growth of the NFL in the UK".

To register for NFL London 2018 tickets all you need is your basic details and to state which game you're interested in attending. As part of the Super Bowl hosting National Football League rules, teams who wish to host the Super Bowl must be willing to give up a home game and play overseas.

The Eagles-Jaguars meeting is one of several expected games scheduled for London.


The Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans will be playing their first regular-season games in England.

It will be the second regular season game for Seattle outside of the United States as the Seahawks also played Buffalo in Toronto on December 16, 2012, a game Seattle won 50-17.

It is a reduction from the 2017-18 schedule, when London hosted four matches, including two at Twickenham, which is without a game next season.

"We continue to be very excited by the growth of the NFL in the United Kingdom", said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

27 at EverBank Field and the Jaguars usually don't play at home the week before because of the stadium retrofitting.
