The series will begin in Week 6 with a Seahawks-Oakland Raiders game at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, built with cooperation and input by the NFL.

The schedule also features three teams that haven't yet played in the International Series: The Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans. By playing games on three consecutive weeks we will learn a lot, both from the fans buying tickets and attending games, and from a logistics and organisational standpoint.

The Seattle Seahawks will play the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 14 in Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium in North London; the Philadelphia Eagles will play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 21 or Oct. 28 in Wembley Stadium; and the Tennessee Titans will play the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 21 or Oct. 28 in Wembley. We all know that London's Finest in the Jacksonville Jaguars would have a home game in the United Kingdom, but it was up in the air for the other seven teams that will play ball away from American soil in 2018.

Tottenham has signed a 10-year contract for games with the NFL. We are able to contemplate something as audacious as having a team in London.

The news got out earlier today about the teams participating in London games this year, leaving the league to announce dates and times this morning.

Levy said: 'Our vision was always to deliver far more than a stadium - we have looked to create a new sport and leisure destination for London and to start real place change in Tottenham - an area about which we are passionate.

"Being asked to play overseas is a result of the success we have had over the last two years", said Titans General Manager Jon Robinson. Working closely together, we have been able to share knowledge and expertise with the National Football League, and continue to learn a great deal from their events and the activation of their games. "It was just two teams out of their minds going to Japan to play a preseason game". "We are very excited to be welcoming some outstanding playoff teams to the stadium in 2018 and hope our strong partnership will continue for years to come".

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