The National Football League announced the matchups and dates for its three 2022 international regular-season games in the UK.

The 2022 London Games series will feature two games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, including the first international game played by the Green Bay Packers, and the return of the Jacksonville Jaguars to Wembley Stadium.

The 2022 London Games:

Last year, as part of the League’s expansion of the regular season to 17 games, it was determined that, beginning with the 2022 season, up to four of the teams from the conference whose teams were eligible for a ninth regular-season home game would instead be designated to play a neutral-site international game each year.

The NFL’s international series for 2022 will kick off with games on back-to-back weekends at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

The New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings will each play in the UK for the third time, both teams having won on two previous occasions. They will make their debuts at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, October 2.

The following Sunday, October 9, the Green Bay Packers, NFC North champions for the third consecutive year, will face the New York Giants in their first international trip, becoming the 32nd NFL team to play in London since 2007.  The Giants will play in the UK for the third time, having won the inaugural London game at Wembley Stadium in 2007 and also the first game played at Twickenham Stadium in 2016.  This will be their first game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

London action shifts to Wembley Stadium on Sunday, October 30, when the Jacksonville Jaguars, who played at Tottenham Hotspur last season, return to Wembley for the first time since 2019, having played there for seven straight seasons.  They will face the Denver Broncos, who are making their first trip to the UK since they played at Wembley in 2010.

Details of UK television broadcasters will be confirmed at a later date.

The League also announced details of the first-ever regular-season game to be played in Germany, at Allianz Arena, home of FC Bayern Munich, on Sunday, November 13, kicking off at 3.30pm local time (9.30am ET). The two-time Super Bowl champion and current NFC South champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by quarterback Tom Brady, will face the Seattle Seahawks. As previously announced, Munich and Frankfurt were chosen to stage regular-season games in Germany over the next four years.

The NFL will also return to Mexico City in the 2022 season, with details of that matchup to be announced shortly.

Fans wishing to receive the latest news about the games, including ticketing updates, should register at: Tickets for the NFL games in Munich and London will be available in June and tickets for the game in Mexico City will be available in August.  Exact dates for sales windows will be announced later this month.

The full 2022 NFL Schedule, powered by AWS, will be released on NFL Network, and the NFL app on Thursday, May 12 at 8:00 PM ET (1:00 a.m. BST, May 13).
