NFL will play regular season games at London’s Twickenham Stadium

Tuesday November 3rd, 2015

The NFL has agreed to play at least one game per season over the next three years at London’s Twickenham Stadium, the league announced Tuesday.

The agreement also includes an option for two additional games to be played at Twickenham, which is home to England’s national rugby team.

“We are committed to continuing to grow our sport in the U.K. and believe that adding Twickenham Stadium to our roster of host venues in London is further evidence of that commitment,” NFL executive vice president of international Mark Waller said in a release Tuesday.

The news comes just two weeks after the NFL extended its deal to play regular season games at Wembley Stadium in London through 2020. The extension included 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.

The NFL will also play two games per year at Tottenham’s new soccer stadium beginning in 2018, which will up the total regular season games played in London to five, at minimum.

The NFL has played games in London each year since 2007.
