The Los Angeles Chargers played in London once prior in 2008 when they were located in San Diego. Kick-off times and the order of the games at Wembley will be announced at a later date. The schedule for upcoming National Football League season is still being finalized.

The Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars are the other four teams to play a game in London next season. The home of English football has now hosted 18 NFL games, with nearly 1.5 million fans attending them.

In Week 6, the Seattle Seahawks will visit the Oakland Raiders at English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium.

The Eagles will play the Jacksonville Jaguars while the Titans will challenge the Los Angeles Chargers, with both games to be contested at Wembley Stadium. Every team has to go over to London to expand the NFL's brand. "Nobody in the United Kingdom needs to worry about our commitment; [it is a] unique year for us".

"The Raiders are a truly global brand and we look forward to hosting the first National Football League game in Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium", Raiders Owner Mark Davis said. The Jaguars and Chargers will each be charged with a home game.

PSG 'tell Nantes they can sign Manchester United target Lucas Moura'
The Old Trafford giants have been linked with Moura but it appears as if they are still some way off any deal being agreed. He has come five years late, but he could make up for lost time by getting up and running right away.


This will be the Chargers' sixth game overseas in franchise history and second in the regular season. There are two out-of-conference games here, but all six teams should be in pursuit of the postseason next year. This will be the first London game of the season, with the two others coming in Weeks 7 and 8. The point of Clark County giving up $750 million in public money for the Raiders stadium was to draw new visitors and new money to Las Vegas. The first game will be on October 14, the Seattle Seahawks will be the road team against the Oakland Raiders.

This marks the second time that the Chargers will play in London.

Also making their first appearance in London are the Tennessee Titans. This will be one of three games played in England in 2018.

"We have created something very unique", Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said at the announcement of fixtures. We have known since the season ended that the Silver and Black will be playing its AFC West rivals, the AFC North, the NFC West, the Indianapolis Colts and the Miami Dolphins in 2018.
