London NFL games 2022: when is Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints, tickets and how to watch

The first London NFL game of 2022 will see the Minnesota Vikings take on the New Orleans Saints at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 2022 NFL International Series is scheduled to kick off next week as Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans travel across the pond to compete in the English capital.

The Vikings head into this one off the back of a thrilling victory over the Detroit Lions, while the Saints are looking to return to winning ways after suffering back-to-back defeats.

Kevin O’Connell’s side will be looking to make it three from three in the UK after coming out on top in their first trip to Wembley Stadium in 2013, as well as a win over Cleveland Browns at Twickham Stadium five years ago.

The Saints’ last trip to the UK came in 2017 where they defeated Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium, then faced San Diego Chargers prior to that way back in 2008.

Despite the Vikings having form on their side, it is the Louisiana outfit that currently hold the bragging rights after they thrashed their opposition in their last meeting.

Christmas Day in 2020 saw Alvin Kamara shine with six touchdowns - helping the Saints to a 52-33 victory in New Orleans.
