Tottenham have confirmed they will host two NFL games on back-to-back weekends during the regular season later this year.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will first host the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints on October 2, before welcoming the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers on October 9.
The games are set to be the third pair hosted in Tottenham after the club agreed a deal to hold at least two NFL games over a 10-year span (Football.London).
It will be all four teams’ first visits to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the Packers getting ready to embark on their first ever international trip and overseas game.
The reigning NFC North champions will be gearing up to face the Giants, who will play in London for the third time after winning the inaugural game in the capital at Wembley Stadium in 2007.
Meanwhile, the Vikings and Saints will also return to the UK for the third time having both won their two previous games.
Todd Kline, Chief Commercial Officer at Tottenham said: “We are delighted to be welcoming all four teams to our magnificent stadium for the first time.
“The experience of the teams that have previously visited in 2019 and 2021 has been overwhelmingly positive, with the bespoke facilities and incredible atmosphere Tottenham Hotspur Stadium provides making it truly the home of the NFL in the UK.
“With pandemic restrictions now over, we are looking forward to welcoming travelling fans from the US back to N17, along with the ever-growing following that the NFL is building throughout Europe.”

The Spurs deal with the NFL continues to roll through every season and it should be another successful couple of weekends in October.
The partnership should be very profitable given all the merchandise and extras involved and, hopefully, we’ll be able to see that fed back into the football club.
