Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams will do battle on Sun 22 Oct, followed a week later by a clash between Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns
The NFL International Series returns to London in October, with two big matches at Twickenham Stadium on Sun 22 and Sun 29 Oct. Tickets for both Arizona Cardinals v Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings v Cleveland Browns go on sale at 10am on Thu 28 Sep.
It's the latest piece of good news for British NFL fans. The International Series has been incredibly popular in London, since the first clash between Miami Dolphins and New York Giants in 2007. Since then the series has grown stronger, with that annual October event getting larger to the point where Wembley hosted four games in 2016. The likes of Calvin Harris, My Chemical Romance, Madness and Craig David have taken care of the pre-match festivities in the past.
This year the four games are split between Wembley and Twickenham, the home of English Rugby Union, with the first match of this year's international series taking place last Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars beating the Baltimore Ravens 44-7.
Twickenham is used to huge collisions, gigantic kicks and slaloming runs, but it's never hosted anything like the spectacle of an NFL match.
Tickets for both of the NFL matches between Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams on Sun 22 Oct, and Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns on Sun 29 Oct at London's Twickenham Stadium go on sale at 10am on Thu 28 Sep.
