In October, Alistair Kirkwood, the NFL's United Kingdom managing director, had told ESPN that he was aiming to get the final six teams (Eagles, Titans, Seahawks, Texans, Panthers and Packers) that have not yet played overseas.

The final date has yet to be determined, but the game will take place either Week 7 or 8 on October 21 or October 28.

Jacksonville will host the Philadelphia Eagles in one of those weeks, while the Los Angeles Chargers will host the Tennessee Titans.

Those games will be played at the iconic Wembley Stadium.

"It's a great learning for us, it's another test for us", Mark Waller, the NFL's executive vice president of worldwide, said Thursday at the site of Tottenham's new stadium.

However, NFL executive vice-president Mark Waller revealed Tottenham's new stadium will host three matches in a future season to compensate for the shortfall in 2018-19.

"We are excited as a franchise to be playing in London as part of the NFL's International Series", said Titans Controlling Owner Amy Adams Strunk.

'Once again, London has shown why it is the sporting capital of the world and open to the very best sports events'. This will be the first London game of the season, with the two others coming in Weeks 7 and 8.

The Seahawks vs. Raiders matchup will be the NFL's debut game played at the new Tottenham Hotspur venue. We are able to contemplate something as audacious as having a team in London.

The club have a 10-year deal with the National Football League to stage two games a season. Tottenham Hotspur and the league will split gate receipts and food, drink and merchandise sales from NFL games there.

The new stadium was designed with NFL-sized changing rooms and to ensure the grass soccer pitch can be retracted and kept under lights below the stands when the artificial surface is required for NFL. This is one of the cornerstones of our vision for creating a world-class sports and leisure destination that will make Tottenham a hive of activity 365 days a year and drive the regeneration of one of the most deprived areas of London.

'The NFL will bring a whole new audience to the local area, showcase Tottenham and bring further economic and social benefits with truly global coverage and attraction'. The home of English football has now hosted 18 NFL games, with nearly 1.5 million fans in attendance.

The NFL has contributed $13.5 million toward the tailoring of the stadium. He is now the Editor-in-Chief of Campus Sports.
