NFL announces four London fixtures in 2019; two to be played at new Tottenham stadium

The NFL has announced four fixtures in London as part of its schedule for the 2019-20 season, including two at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 62,062-seat venue recently opened its doors following a three-year build.

The stadium was due to host its first NFL game last year as part of a 10-year agreement with the league, only for it to be switched to Wembley due to delays in construction.

Almost a year on from that proposed fixture, the first game at Spurs’ impressive home will feature the Chicago Bears and the Oakland Raiders on October 6.

A week later, the Carolina Panthers will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Wembley will again host two matches, with this year’s beaten Super Bowl finalists the Los Angeles Rams up against the Cincinnati Bengals on October 27, with the Houston Texans playing the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 3.

The NFL will also be venturing into Mexico City on November 18 when the Kansas City Chiefs face the Los Angeles Chargers at the Azteca Stadium.
