National Football League announces 3 London games for 2018

  • Eagles to play Jaguars in London in 2018 regular season

The Chargers' trip to London will be the sixth game played overseas in franchise history and second in the regular season.

Jacksonville Jaguars will take on Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley as they continue to play one home game per season in London.

The Seahawks vs. Raiders matchup will be the NFL's debut game played at the new Tottenham Hotspur venue.

National Football League worldwide vice president Mark Waller said: "This is another important year as we develop our plans for London and the UK".

Khan said: 'London is the worldwide home of the NFL and I am really excited to welcome the world's best American football stars and their thousands of fans from around the globe back to our city.

Three of the six teams playing in London in 2018 have made the playoffs this season (Philadelphia, Jacksonville, Tennessee), while two more finished the season with winning records (Seattle, LA Chargers).

The Premier League can pay contracts and wages that no other, apart from maybe three or four clubs overseas , can pay". Of course, we don't know if De Bruyne has any inside knowledge. "We are still in negotiations.

The Chargers' last game in London, a 37-32 loss to New Orleans in Wembley Stadium on October 26, 2008, was a quarterback duel between Philip Rivers, who completed 25 of 40 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns, and the Saints' Drew Brees, who completed 20 of 41 passes for 339 yards and three scores.

Since regular-season games were first played in London in 2007, 21 have been played in the British capital featuring 26 different teams.

Next season, the Titans will travel to face the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts and the Chargers in London. However, we now know that the Raiders will play their former AFC West rival in the Seattle Seahawks in London this season.

Mark Waller, NFL executive vice-president of events and worldwide, says it might work. 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 organisational standpoint. We are able to contemplate something as audacious as having a team in London.

Khan was enthusiastic about the development and the benefits that it will bring to a traditionally deprived area of London: 'I welcome the commitment from Spurs in building not just a fantastic stadium for Premier League football and the NFL, but also leading the regeneration of this area of London and investing in local people'.

The second game that was announced features a pair of division champions who are still alive in the playoffs.
