NFL To Play First Game In Germany – And Three Contests In U.K.
The New York Giants are among the 10 teams that will play a regular-season NFL game overseas this year. The slate includes the league’s very first game on German soil.
Never shy to make a spectacle out of itself, the league plans the games as part of its international series in an effort to grow the game.
The G-Men will face the Green Bay Packers in London at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on October 9. In addition, the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints will play at the same stadium on October 2, while the Jacksonville Jaguars will “host” the Denver Broncos at Wembley Stadium on October 30.
Then, on November 13, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady will head to Munich, Germany, to face the Seattle Seahawks at FC Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena.
All games will kick off at 9:30 a.m. ET.
Elsewhere in North America, Mexico City will host the only neutral-site divisional game, when the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals square up at Estadio Azteca.
