The NFL returns to London in 2018 with three hugely exciting fixtures lined up for fans of the sport in the UK. Since the first contest, held at Wembley Stadium in 2007 between New York Giants and Miami Dolphins, the London Games have gone from strength to strength, with the game's greats gracing the English turf, and musical acts from Tinie Tempah to My Chemical Romance performing at the pre-game show.

2018 will be a year of firsts with Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans all set to make their debut in London. The Seahawks will take on Oakland Raiders, the Eagles face Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Titans will do battle with Los Angeles Chargers.
