Europe to Host A Record Five Regular-Season NFL Games in 2023

  • The Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, and Jacksonville Jaguars will host games in the U.K.
  • The Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will host games in Germany.

The NFL and Europe can’t get enough of each other.

The league announced the five teams that will host international games this year on Thursday, with three regular-season games in the U.K. and two in Germany — the most the NFL has hosted in Europe.

  • The Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans will host games in London at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium — the only international purpose-built NFL stadium.
  • The Jacksonville Jaguars, who have a multiyear commitment to play in the U.K., will play a game at Wembley Stadium.

The Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will make their debuts in Germany, with the cities to be announced later — the league previously announced Munich and Frankfurt would host NFL games in the coming years. Both teams have marketing rights in the country.

It will be the first time five international regular-season games are all played in Europe. Mexico will not host a game this year due to renovations at Estadio Azteca.

With three in the U.K., one in Mexico, and one in Germany, the 2022 International Series drew record attendances and viewership.

Opponents, dates, and kickoff times will be announced with the 2023 schedule.

Overseas, Please

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell previously hinted at a possible European division with “multiple locations in Europe.”

Brett Gosper, NFL head of the U.K. and Europe, said after this year’s Munich game that the league’s analysis of fan growth and commercial potential puts France and Spain on its “radar.”
