London will host four of the clashes while Mexico City plays host to one 2019 bout. The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers will play in Mexico City.

The Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will battle in London. London games also included the Chicago Bears against the Oakland Raiders, the Cincinnati Bengals against the Los Angeles Rams and the Houston Texans against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Houston and Carolina will be making their London debuts.

The Chiefs and Chargers will play at Estadio Azteca after the Rams and Chiefs game in 2018 was set to be played at the stadium, but had to be moved due to poor field conditions.

The four London games will be split between Wembley Stadium and Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium.
