The Jaguars formally announced today that they’ll play one “home” game a year at Wembley Stadium from 2013 to 2016. But Jacksonville won’t be the only NFL city losing one of its home games to the United Kingdom.
In the Jaguars’ announcement of the annual game in London, the team confirmed that the league is working to add a second game in the U.K. next year.
“We have had a tremendously positive reaction to our sport in the U.K.,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said.
There’s no word yet on whether that game will also be at Wembley or at another venue in the U.K., and there’s no word on which team will sacrifice one of its home games to travel overseas. We know that team won’t be the Rams, who have scrapped their plans to play in London in 2013 and 2014 as they continue to negotiate with St. Louis over improvements to the Edward Jones Dome.
But some team other than the Jaguars will be hosting a game in the U.K. in 2013.
