The Oakland Raiders are making a trip overseas. The Raiders will take on the Seattle Seahawks in London this year during the 2018 London Games.
According to the Raiders website, this marks the first NFL game to take place at Tottenham Stadium.
Owner Mark Davis says “The Raiders are a truly global brand and we look forward to hosting the first NFL game in Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium.”
Commissioner Roger Goodell adds “We continue to be very excited by the growth of the NFL in the UK. The fans have demonstrated outstanding support and passion for the NFL over the past 11 seasons and we look forward to some great games in London this year. A key feature of our success is playing in iconic, world-renowned venues like Wembley and Twickenham, and we look forward to playing in what will be another incredible setting for NFL football at Tottenham’s new stadium.”
Save the date for Oct. 14.
#RaiderNation stays global.
