National Football League releases schedule for 2018 games in London

Eagles to play Jaguars in London in 2018 regular season

One of those fixtures will be played on 21 October and the other on 28 October, with the decision on that still to be taken. The other two will take place at Wembley Stadium, English soccer's national stadium, on October 21 or 28.

Jacksonville Jaguars will take on Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley as they continue to play one home game per season in London.

Three games will take place in three successive weeks for the first time.

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".

The Seahawks will be the away team against Oakland, an obvious plus as it means they'll still have their usual eight regular-season home games at CenturyLink Field.

"We very much hope there will be a franchise in London and we would very much like this stadium to be used for that club", Levy said.

"That's very important it was one of the factors to play three games rather than four".

The NFL made it official Thursday, setting the details for the Eagles' first appearance in the league's International Series next season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "Nobody in the United Kingdom needs to worry about our commitment; [it is a] unique year for us". By playing games on three consecutive weeks we will learn a lot, both from the fans buying tickets and attending games, and from a logistics and organisational standpoint.

The Oakland Raiders will host the Seattle Seahawks in the first NFL game at the new London stadium of English Premier League club Tottenham.

"Being asked to play overseas is a result of the success we have had over the last two years", said Titans General Manager Jon Robinson.

You can watch the National Football League playoffs on Sky this year as they'll be broadcasting all the games live.

The new stadium was designed with NFL-sized changing rooms and to ensure the grass soccer pitch can be retracted and kept under lights below the stands when the artificial surface is required for NFL.

'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.

The NFL kicked off its series of regular-season games in London in 2007, when the New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium on their way to winning the Super Bowl.
