In 2023, several NFL regular season games will be played between Germany and England
The NFL announced Thursday that the Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will be five of the teams that will play in England and Germany in the 2023 season.
“Growing the league and our sport internationally is a major strategic priority for the NFL; We are excited to return to play five games outside the United States in 2023,” said Peter O’Reilly, NFL executive vice president of business.
The five-game international series of the International Home Marketing Area (IHMA) program for the upcoming NFL season will have three games in England and two in Germany.
The Buffalo Bills, which are led by quarterback Josh Allen, and the Tennessee Titans, will play their games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a venue that also hosted a couple of duels in the 2022 season. The Jaguars will have their duel at Wembley Stadium.

Details of dates, matchups and kick-off times will be confirmed at a later date when the full 2023 schedule is announced.
This will be the second visit to London for both Buffalo and Tennessee; the Bills played there in 2015 and the Titans in 2018. The Jaguars will play their 10th game in London.
The Chiefs and the Patriots will make their debut in Germany, a country that in 2022 experienced an NFL game for the first time.
The opponents and dates of these games will be announced when the league schedule is released.
This year Mexico City will not be part of the program due to the renovations that the Azteca Stadium will undergo to host the 2026 World Cup.
“Mexico plays a critical role in the NFL’s international growth strategy with its passionate and growing fan base. We look forward to future games in Mexico,” added O’Reilly.
