League Announces that London Will Be Site of Next Season's Overseas Game
The NFL announced today that London will be the site of its overseas regular season game next season.
The league's team owners voted in October to play one overseas game next season and up to two regular season games per year in foreign venues thereafter. The league narrowed its choices for next season's game to sites in Germany and England before selecting London.
In today's announcement, the NFL said it will announce the precise location of the game and the teams involved later. But there have been reports that the New York Giants are expected to play the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium. The Dolphins reportedly would be listed as the home team for the game. The Buffalo Bills also have been mentioned as a possible opponent for the Dolphins.
The first regular season game to be played outside the U.S. came in the 2005 season when the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers played in Mexico City.
