NFL Announces 2018 London Schedule

London calls on Seahawks: Seattle to play Raiders on Oct. 14 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

London calls on Seahawks: Seattle to play Raiders on Oct. 14 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

The new stadium is on track to open in August, and so hosting a game in October is a state of confidence from the club that the new ground is on pace to be on time and ready to go.

English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium becomes the third venue to stage a regular-season game in the United Kingdom, joining Wembley Stadium and Twickenham Stadium.

The Seahawks will have their longest-ever road trip next season.

Now we do. Speaking at a press conference at Lilywhite House next to the stadium construction site, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, London mayor Sadiq Khan, Martin Glenn, and National Football League chief Mark Waller announced that the first National Football League game will be held at the new stadium on Sunday, October 14, 2018 and will feature the Oakland Raiders vs. the Seattle Seahawks.

The Eagles are finally heading to London. With the three London games solidified, the only remaining slots are for the one game in Mexico. The NFL invested $12.8 million in the venue, which has a total cost of more than $1 billion. By the end of the 2018 season, the only teams not to have played a game in London will be the Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers.

The Jaguars, regulars on the London circuit, will "host" the Eagles in one game. The games are part of the NFL's International Series, which celebrated its first decade previous year.

It hit an all-time high of $830 billion earlier this month, according to data from CoinMarketCap . With this news, many investors have started to sell the coins immediately.

The schedule also features three teams that haven't yet played in the International Series: The Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans.

Coincidentally, Thursday also marks the day the Philadelphia 76ers happen to be playing in London with an exciting meeting against a familiar face in the Boston Celtics, but let's focus on the Eagles for now. The Jaguars, on the other hand, have one of the league's best defences.

The Raiders, Jaguars and Chargers agreed to give up a home game to play in London.

The Eagles, Seahawks and Titans all have never played in London before.

The three games are heavy on West Coast teams. They've sold out 130 straight games and have a waiting list a mile long for people who want season tickets.
