NFL announces 2014 International Series games

The NFL has announced the six teams that will play in three regular season games at Wembley Stadium for the 2014 NFL season.

Jacksonville Jaguars will take on the Dallas Cowboys, the Atlanta Falcons will host the Detroit Lions and the Oakland Raiders will play the Miami Dolphins.

The dates and times of the fixtures are yet to be announced.

NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, said of the fixtures: “Our fans in the UK continue to demonstrate their passion for more football. Next year for the first time we will play three regular-season games in London.

We have scheduled three attractive games with four teams playing in their first International Series game. The growing enthusiasm for the NFL internationally is exciting and we look forward to continuing to respond to this interest in our game.”

Participation in amateur football in the UK has risen since the start of the International Series, growing by approximately 15% per year since 2007.
