Earlier today news leaked that the Atlanta Falcons would be ‘hosting’ a regular season home game in London for the 2014 season.
Now, according to a press release from NFL.com, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders are set to join them in hosting a game across the pond.
In response to growing fan support of football in the United Kingdom, the NFL will take another important step in its international development in 2014 when, for the first time, three regular-season games will be played in the UK, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced today at the league’s fall meeting in Washington, DC.
The Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons, and Oakland Raiders each will play one home game in London next year at Wembley Stadium. The dates of the games and opponents for each club will be announced later this season.
As mentioned above, the opponents in the games are yet to be determined so six teams will be making the trip to London for the 2014 season.
The Jaguars will be returning for their second consecutive season as they are scheduled to play the San Francisco 49ers at Wembley Stadium on October 27th. They have a single regular season game scheduled in London through 2016.
