National Football League announces 3 London games for 2018

National Football League announces 3 London games for 2018”

One of the jokes about the NFL's games in London has been that we annually send the United Kingdom awful matchups.

The six teams participating in the London series are the Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Chargers, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans.

Added Phillip Rivers, who threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns in London a decade ago: "I'm excited for the opportunity to once again play at a historic stadium like Wembley, and hopefully this trip will include the Chargers heading home with the win".

Waller, NFL executive vice-president of events and global, said: "I think we are ready, we have definitely learned a lot in the 11 years we have been doing this. It was just two teams out of their minds going to Japan to play a preseason game".

"A key feature of our success is playing in iconic, world-renowned venues like Wembley and Twickenham, and we look forward to playing in what will be another incredible setting for NFL football at Tottenham's new stadium".

Tottenham begin their 10-year deal with the National Football League to host regular-season games at their new 61,000-seat stadium. The Chargers are the designated "home" team, which means they will play only seven regular-season contests at StubHub Center.

SpaceX set to launch secret Zuma mission
SpaceX now can look forward to its next major test for the year - launching its huge heavy-duty rocket for the first time ever. The unmanned Falcon rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying the satellite toward an undisclosed orbit.

The schedule also features three teams that haven't yet played in the International Series: The Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans.

"This is another important year as we develop our plans for London and the United Kingdom", said Mark Weller, the NFL's executive vice president of events and worldwide. This is one of the cornerstones of our vision for creating a world-class sports and leisure destination that will make Tottenham a hive of activity 365 days a year and drive the regeneration of one of the most deprived areas of London.

Tottenham has signed a 10-year contract for games with the NFL. We are able to contemplate something as audacious as having a team in London. Two will be staged at Wembley following the first game which will be played at Tottenham Hotspur's new 61,000-seat stadium.

"The NFL holds huge value and importance to Wembley Stadium". The order of those games will be announced closer to the season.

"It is very exciting", said Levy.

"It has been 10 years since we last played in London, and other than the outcome of the game back in 2008, the experience there among the worldwide fans was pretty cool", Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers told the team's website.
