The NFL has announced the three NFL games to be played in London, UK in the 2016 season.

Wembley Stadium has hosted regular NFL season games for the previous three seasons as part of the International Series.

The NFL also confirmed that one of the games will be staged at the home of rugby, Twickenham.

For the first time London will host back to back season games with the three fixtures played in October, covering weeks four, six and seven of the season.

Jacksonville Jaguars will once again play in London, committing to their four year deal with Wembley.

The fixtures are as follows:

October 2 – Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Wembley)

October 23 – NFC East opponent @ St Louis Rams (Twickenham)

October 30 – Washington Redskins @ Cincinnati Bengals (Wembley)

This means UK fans will be welcoming the Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins for the first time.

St Louis Rams are still awaiting their NFC East opponents, with the real possibility that the Redskins could qualify to play them on October 23rd before their match with the Bengals on 30th.
