In an unprecedented move by the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars are set to play two regular-season games in London in 2023, marking the first instance of an NFL team playing twice outside of the U.S. in a single season.
The NFL has revealed that the 2023 season will also feature a record-setting five regular-season games in Europe, including a debut pair of games in Germany.
The ‘home’ teams for the series had previously been disclosed, but now the NFL has confirmed the visiting teams. The Atlanta Falcons and the Baltimore Ravens are gearing up to jet off to London in October.
The Jaguars will first meet the Falcons at the iconic Wembley Stadium on Sunday, October 1. Then, just a week later on October 8, the Jaguars will compete against the Buffalo Bills at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
On October 15, the Baltimore Ravens are scheduled to face the Tennessee Titans at Tottenham. Following these games, the NFL action will shift to Frankfurt’s Deutsche Bank Park, with a capacity of 48,000 spectators.
The Miami Dolphins will take on the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, on November 5. A week later, on November 12, the Indianapolis Colts will square off against the New England Patriots.
This expansion into Germany follows the NFL’s first regular-season game in the country last season, kicking off a four-year deal with Munich and Frankfurt as host cities.
Last season saw five international games, including one in Mexico. However, an additional game is slated for Germany this year due to ongoing renovations at Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium.
