The Raiders will play the Seattle Seahawks in London next season, NFL UK announced Thursday morning.

NFC East winners Philadelphia Eagles will take on their AFC South counterparts and fellow divisional playoff contenders Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley. The other two will take place at Wembley Stadium, English soccer's national stadium, on October 21 or 28.

The NFL has scheduled arguably its most impressive slate of London games yet in an announcement at Tottenham's new stadium.

Tennessee will play the Los Angeles Chargers at Wembley Stadium on October 21 or 28.

The new Tottenham stadium will feature the world's first dividing, retractable soccer pitch - with an artificial surface underneath that will be used for National Football League games and concerts - and a dedicated National Football League entrance. Both will be considered home games, meaning the team will play one fewer game in StubHub Center in 2018 and 2019.

They've played in Mexico City the past two seasons and weren't going to three-peat, leaving the United Kingdom as the worldwide destination.


The league is now more than a decade into playing regular-season games in London after kicking off the series in 2007.

The NFL has said that all teams will need to play in one of the games so it is likely that those three remaining will be three of the potential teams for 2019.

Kickoff time has not been announced.

NFL London tickets are not yet on sale. "I'm excited for the opportunity to once again play at a historic stadium like Wembley, and hopefully this trip will include the Chargers heading home with the win". The NFL releases the full 2018 schedule around mid-April. The Eagles will have home games against the Falcons, Panthers, Texans, Colts, Vikings, Cowboys, Giants and Redskins, and road games against the Saints, Buccaneers, Titans, Rams, Cowboys, Giants, Redskins and Jaguars.

Seattle played a game outside the United States in 2012, but it was not part of the International Series. Those interested in attending any of the games can go to www.ticketmaster.com/nfl for information.
