New Wembley has built a legacy beyond key soccer matches, hosting concerts and NFL games as well.

The NFL announced Thursday the three games that will be played in London next season.

The first game will be played in Week 4 on Sept. 28, with the Oakland Raiders against the Miami Dolphins.

The Atlanta Falcons will play the Detroit Lions on Oct. 26, and the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov. 9.

All three games will be played at London's Wembley Stadium. The Raiders, Falcons and Jaguars are the designated home teams.

There were two games in London this year, with the Minnesota Vikings beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-27 on Sept. 29 and the San Francisco 49ers routing the Jacksonville Jaguars 42-10 on Oct. 27.

"Our fans in the UK continue to demonstrate their passion for more football," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement last month. “Next year for the first time we will play three regular-season games in London. We have scheduled three attractive games with four teams playing in their first International Series game. The growing enthusiasm for the NFL internationally is exciting and we look forward to continuing to respond to this interest in our game.”
