It has been confirmed today that a major sporting event will return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium later this year.

The National Football League (NFL) have announced that they will resume the NFL London Games this year with two matches to be held in North London.

The Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars will both stage home matches at the stadium. Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, four games were regularly played in London, including two at Wembley Stadium.

The deal to host NFL matches at Wembley expired at the end of last year, with Tottenham chosen as the sole venue for this year’s games (Evening Standard).

The Falcons will face the New York Jets on Sunday 10 October while the Jaguars take on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday 17 October, both in regular-season NFL clashes with each kicking off at 2.30pm.

Until last year, the Jaguars had played a game in London every season since 2013.

It is great to see major sporting events set to return to the stadium which not only gives a boost to a sense of things returning to normal, but also much-needed revenue for the club.
