The NFL has confirmed the six teams that will take part in three international series games to be played in London next year.

The Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Dallas Cowboys will be the teams to visit England next season as part of the three games staged at Wembley Stadium.

The trio of games will see the Dallas Cowboys will go up against the Jaguars – London’s resident home team for the next four years – while the Lions are the nominal visitors to take on the Falcons.

In the third game Miami Dolphins will go head to head with the Oakland Raiders.

The series will mark the first time that three regular season games will be played in London, something NFL commissioner Roger Goodell believes is an indication of the growing popularity of the game in the United Kingdom.

"Our fans in the UK continue to demonstrate their passion for more football," he said. "Next year for the first time we will play three regular-season games in London.

"We have scheduled three attractive games with four teams playing in their first International Series game. The growing enthusiasm for the NFL internationally is exciting and we look forward to continuing to respond to this interest in our game."

The Jaguars will play the first of their four ‘home’ games over the next four years at Wembley this weekend when they go up against the San Francisco 49ers.
