After yet another trip to England and the triumphant return of NFL football to Mexico and Germany, the 2022 International Series went off without a hitch. With only one round completed this postseason, the league is already generating excitement for 2023 by announcing the NFL International game teams.
Only the hosts have been identified at the moment, but the league intends on playing another three games in London and doubling its action in Germany to two matchups. As fans continue to speculate about their respective team’s upcoming schedule, let’s take a look at which franchises will host an international game in 2023.
5 Teams Announced for 2023 NFL International Games
So who has the league selected as the 2023 NFL International game teams? The Jacksonville Jaguars will continue their long-standing tradition of playing at Wembley Stadium in London. The 2023 game will be Jacksonville’s tenth game in London following owner Shahid Khan’s multiple deals with the English Football Association.
Additionally, the NFL will play two games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with the Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills serving as hosts. Tottenham is the only purpose-built NFL stadium outside of the United States, as the league plans to play its eighth and ninth games there in 2023. Both the Bills and Titans return to London for the second time as both teams will search for their first international victory.
The NFL also has plans to play two games in Germany this upcoming season, bringing the 2023 NFL International Series to five games. The Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will make their debuts in Germany as the home team for their international tilts.
The NFL returned to Germany for the first time since 2007 in the 2022 International Series and rewarded the fans with more action.
One destination seemingly missing from this list is Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Unfortunately, the NFL will not make a trip to Mexico in 2023 due to renovations to Estadio Azteca. However, NFL Executive Vice President Peter O’Reilly assured that the NFL does intend to return to Mexico once renovations are completed citing the country’s critical role in the league’s international growth strategy.
While fans anxiously await the NFL international games opponents, at least the “home team” and international fans can get a jump on making preparations well ahead of time.
