NFL Confirm Wembley Dates and Times

The National Football League has confirmed the dates and kickoff times for the two regular-season London games to be played at Wembley Stadium in October 2018.

  • Sunday, 21 October (Week 7): Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Chargers, Wembley Stadium, 2.30 p.m. BST
  • Sunday, 28 October (Week 8): Philadelphia Eagles at Jacksonville Jaguars, Wembley Stadium, 1:30 p.m. GMT

The matchups, announced in January, will see the Seattle Seahawks playing their first game in London when they face the Oakland Raiders at Tottenham Hotspur on October 14. Over the following two weeks, the Tennessee Titans will be hosted by the Los Angeles Chargers; before the new Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles, take on the Jacksonville Jaguars, playing a home game in London for the sixth straight season and coming off the back of a loss in last season’s AFC Championship game. Both Wembley games will kick-off at 9.30 a.m. Eastern time in the US.

Season tickets for the two games have already sold out, however, you will be able to buy individual game day tickets when they go on sale via Ticketmaster at 10am on 1 May 2018.

Loyal Season Ticket holders were disappointed today as they had hoped that they would find out when they would be able to buy tickets for the game between the Seattle Seahawks at Oakland Raiders at Spurs’ White Hart Lane Stadium.  Currently, those tickets are due to go on sale in August but no specific date has been announced.

Whilst seating is being instaled already at White Hart Lane and Spurs’ season tickets are already on sale, the seating plan for the NFL cannot be completed until TV broadcaster Fox has completed their site survey to locate cameras which will necessitate some seat removal.

They went on to say “We currently anticipate that 90% of Wembley season ticket holders will be able to purchase the same number of tickets for the game at Tottenham as at Wembley (maximum four per account holder)”

Fans have voiced fears that Spurs’ own season ticket holders would have access to tickets in advance of the NFL fans, however, the NFL confirmed today that “The only tickets sold ahead of this will be Hospitality.”

The full 2018 NFL schedule will be released tonight at 1 a.m. UK time. Ticketing information for the London games is available at www.nfluk.com.
