Oakland Raiders To Play In London Next Sept. 28

The NFL announced the dates for its International Series of three games to be played at London’s Wembley Stadium in 2014.

The Oakland Raiders will be first on the docket when they “host” the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 28 as part of Week 4 of the NFL schedule, according to SportsNetwork.com. (h/t Sacramento Bee) It will be the Raiders’ first-ever trip to London for one of the regular-season games the NFL began playing in England in 2007.

The league staged one game there from 2007-12, then expanded to two this season—including the Jacksonville Jaguars hosting the San Francisco 49ers last month. Next year, the list grows to three games.

In addition to the Raiders and Dolphins in September, Wembley will host the Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions on Oct. 26 and the Dallas Cowboys and the Jaguars on Nov. 9.

Jacksonville has committed to playing at least one home game in London for four seasons, beginning this year.

The other London game this year was on Sept. 29 when the Minnesota Vikings beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-27.

It will be the first London trip for the Falcons, Lions and Cowboys. Miami played in the first regular-season game at Wembley against the New York Giants in 2007.
