NFL to play four regular-season games in London in 2019

Football will continue to be a force in the United Kingdom.

The NFL on Tuesday confirmed that London will host four regular-season games in 2019 at Wembley Stadium and the new stadium being built for Tottenham Hotspur.

The league did not specify which teams will make the trip overseas or when the games will take place.

“The games in the past few weeks have once again demonstrated the incredible passion of NFL fans in the UK,” NFL executive vice president Mark Waller said in a statement. “The support of our stadium partners, the Mayor of London and the Minister for Sport gives us a great foundation for further development of the sport and the ability to give our fans even more NFL games in the coming years.”

The NFL has played 24 regular-season games in the UK since first playing there in 2007, with 29 of the league’s 32 teams appearing at least once.
