Raiders and Seahawks will play first National Football League match at Spurs new stadium

The Seahawks and Oakland Raiders will kick off the festivities on October 14 at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Eagles fans can rest assured knowing that the game will be one of the Jaguars' home games that will be moved, meaning there will still be eight home dates at Lincoln Financial Field in 2018.

Jacksonville Jaguars will take on Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley as they continue to play one home game per season in London.

Added Phillip Rivers, who threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns in London a decade ago: "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".

"We continue to be very excited by the growth of the NFL in the United Kingdom", said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. "It was just two teams out of their minds going to Japan to play a preseason game".

All four winning teams in the NFL's London Games 2017 series went on to win their divisions: Jacksonville (AFC South), New Orleans Saints (NFC South), Los Angeles Rams (NFC West) and Minnesota Vikings (NFC North).

The NFL will feature three games to be played on consecutive weeks in London next season, the league announced Thursday. The Raiders, the home team in London for a second time, welcome the Seahawks to Tottenham for their first game in London. We are able to contemplate something as audacious as having a team in London.

"Being asked to play overseas is a result of the success we have had over the last two years", said Titans General Manager Jon Robinson.

'The NFL will bring a whole new audience to the local area, showcase Tottenham and bring further economic and social benefits with truly global coverage and attraction'. Tottenham Hotspur and the league will split gate receipts and food, drink and merchandise sales from NFL games there.

Covered Seahawks for Tacoma News Tribune for six seasons. The official attendance for the game was 84,592, a then-record for any National Football League game played in the United Kingdom.

"It is very exciting", said Levy. "We will play an additional game at Tottenham in a future season, over and above the planned two per year, to make up for this".
