NFL London: Schedule announced for Tottenham Stadium & Wembley games

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has a retractable football pitch with synthetic turf underneath for NFL games

The new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will host its first NFL game when the Chicago Bears play the Oakland Raiders on 6 October.

The £1bn multi-purpose venue, which opened earlier this month, will also welcome the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on 13 October.

Wembley Stadium stages two games, including 2018 Super Bowl runners-up the LA Rams against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The NFL season starts on 5 September.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium opened on 3 April for the club's Premier League match against Crystal Palace.

The 62,062-seater arena was due to host its first NFL game in 2018 as part of a 10-year agreement with the league, only for it to be switched to Wembley because of delays in its construction.

The NFL's International Series concludes on 18 November with a game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers at Mexico City's Azteca Stadium.
