NFL increases London series to four games in 2019

The National Football League has announced it will stage four games in London next season, with two at Wembley Stadium and two at the redeveloped White Hart Lane site.

Wembley staged three sold-out games this year. One had been scheduled at Tottenham Hotspur’s ground but had to be moved as the stadium – which is due to open in the new year after a series of delays – was not yet ready.

The NFL did not say when the games will be played and which teams will travel to London. The Jacksonville Jaguars have played in London in each of the past six seasons.
