The NFL will play five games outside the United States this season, and today the league announced five teams playing in those games: The Packers, Buccaneers, Cardinals, Jaguars and Saints.

The Jaguars had already committed to playing in London every season. The other four teams are all from the NFC, which was expected because this year the NFC teams play nine home games and eight road games. As long as the 17-game schedule is in place, the league will usually have teams in the conference that’s playing nine home games play one overseas.

In addition to the Jaguars, the Packers and Saints will play games in London. The Packers and Saints will play at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, while the Jaguars will play at Wembley Stadium. The Packers were the only team that hadn’t played a game in London, so after this season all 32 teams will have played there at least once.

The Buccaneers will play the NFL’s first-ever regular-season game in Germany, at FC Bayern Munich Stadium. The Cardinals will play the NFL’s first game in Mexico since 2019, at Estadio Azteca.

Dates of the international games, and the five opposing teams, have not yet been announced.

  1. I hate losing home games to an overseas venue … but the Jags, once the smallest market in the NFL, now sits at #27 in the league with a value of 2.8 billion.

    Their value on the field, however, is closer to negative 2.8 billion.

    Mother of god, we need a winning season.

  2. Here come the nationalists whining about how football is a “Murican” game that should only be played in “Murica”. It really is amazing how people who have never traveled outside of their their no stoplight towns think that they know something about the geopolitical economy.

  3. The NFL is huge now in the UK, with all the games selling out within a few hours, and I suspect Germany will be the same.

    The crowd and atmosphere is amazing and thankfully we are finally getting the Packers

  4. I get the NFL wants more and more money, but taking games away from your core fan base is in bad taste. The NFL is going to shove this down our throats, like ESPN tries to shove soccer in our face. (and still nobody cares)

  5. The NFL should expand by 2 teams….just put the Jags and Kahn in London ,give a expansion team Jacksonville BULLS OF the USFL TO jacksonville and a expansion team to San Diego.

  6. Im a packer fan and still baffled why overseas games bother fans? Its a good business desicion. Great for the team. Good for the league.

    If the nfl doesnt get these markets and there is profit out there, some other investment group will grab it up.

    This is what makes that 17th game great…for these types of games.

  7. I’m a packer fan too! Live in California so this means wings and beer at 630AM?!?! That’s my issue lol

    Why are we still doing this?!


    Becaues it is professional sports and they want all the money they can get. The markets in the USA have their limits. Tapping new markets is the best way to increase revenue.

  9. This news is fantastic for the huge Packer fan base abroad, they’ve waited for this moment for years and they’re finally getting it.
    It’s just a little disappointing they’re taking away a home game, and I’m still waiting on word of whether it’ll be a Green or Gold package ticket.

    Now, maybe we can finally put this issue to bed and stop the incessant whining from other NFC North fans, who, for some dopey reason, have made this a point of contention for years. 🙄

  10. Packers finally have to travel to London, but after their window has closed and the Brits get to watch a sub 500 team…

  11. I realize that the NFL wants to try to expand to more markets, in order to make more money…but they already tried this with NFL Europe, and the fact that league no longer exists should speak volumes.

    Goodell et al can get away with a few overseas games each year as a novelty, but the more they push, the more the novelty will wear off, the more the logistics of going overseas for a game will harm the teams and players, and that is the point where the law of diminishing returns will come into play.
