The NFL extended its deal to play regular season games at Wembley Stadium in London through 2020, the league announced Wednesday.

The extension includes at least two games per season at the London stadium for the next five years, with an option to extend the agreement for an additional five seasons after 2020.

As part of the deal, the Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to play one home game at Wembley each season through 2020. 

“This new agreement extends a very successful, long-term relationship,” said Mark Waller, NFL Executive Vice President of International. “It is very exciting to be making this announcement in the same week that we will reach one million fans for the International Series in London.”

The NFL, which has had its teams play regular season games in London each year since 2007, is in the midst of playing three games in the UK this season for the second-straight campaign.

On Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars (1–5) will host the Buffalo Bills (3–3) at Wembley at 9:30 a.m. ET.
