The NFL schedule for 2021 has been announced, and games will be returning to London
Two fixtures will be played in England as part of the 2021 schedule as the sport continues to grow on the opposite side of the Atlantic.
London has hosted 28 games since 2007, mainly at Wembley Stadium, but all of last year’s games were played in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This year’s games will be hosted at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, home of the Premier League football club.
"We are excited to be returning to London and welcoming back our fans for two great matchups," said Christopher Halpin, NFL Executive Vice-President—Chief Strategy & Growth Officer. "We expect these games to be a celebration of our sport and our robust UK fan base.
"We have been working closely with the UK government, the city of London and the relevant health organisations over the past year in planning the games. Through their successful vaccine rollout and commitment to bringing crowds back to sports events, the time is right for the return of NFL football this fall. We will continue to monitor the COVID environment, putting health and safety first, and will adhere to any and all future COVID regulations and restrictions."
When are the London fixtures?
The Atlanta Falcons will host the New York Jets on Sunday, 10 October (14:30 BST) before Jacksonville Jaguars face Miami Dolphins the following Sunday.
It will be an eighth ‘home’ game in London for the Jaguars, while the Dolphins will play in the UK for the fifth time.
The Falcons and Jets will both be appearing in their second London game.
