Jaguars, Falcons and Raiders all set to make the trip to Wembley.
The NFL has announced that they will play three regular season games at Wembley next season as it continues to expand its international series.
Following the success of the Minnesota Vikings’ clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers last month, the NFL returns to Wembley on October 27 as the San Francisco 49ers take on the Jacksonville Jaguars.
With both events sold out, the UK fan base will be delighted by the news on Tuesday as the Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders will all make the trip next year.
It will be the most games the league has played abroad in one year, with dates and opponents expected to be announced when the schedule is complied next year.
“Our fans in the UK have continued to demonstrate that they love football and want more,” said commissioner Roger Goodell according to ESPN.
“Both of this year’s games in London sold out quickly. The fan enthusiasm for our sport continues to grow. By playing two games in the UK this year, we are creating more fans. We hope that with three games in London next year we will attract even more people to our game.”
The Raiders and Falcons will make their first trip to Wembley for a regular season game, while the Jaguars are set to return after making their first appearance in 19 days.
While the NFL continue to reward the UK fans, the debate is still open as to whether or not there is the possibility of a London franchise being introduced to the league.
Goodell has previously suggested that it could become a reality someday, however for now he will be delighted at the prospect of increasing the number of games taking place across the pond.
