NFL to host three season games at Wembley

The National Football League (NFL) is planning to extend its presence in London by hosting a third regular-season game at Wembley Stadium, according to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

The NFL has hosted one of its games at Wembley since 2007, and the upcoming season will see two games played at the London venue. The sport’s commissioner Roger Goodell, however, has been reported saying that the Jacksonville Jaguars will play two of its eight season games at Wembley, in addition to another NFL fixture.

The Jaguars have signed a four-year deal to play one of its ‘home’ games at the venue, but this could be extended to two games following speculation that the franchise will eventually become an official London NFL team.

Jacksonville will face the San Francisco 49ers at Wembley on October 27, and the Minnesota Vikings will play the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 29. Both games have been sold out.
