Oakland Raiders will host Seattle Seahawks at Tottenham's new stadium during the 2018-19 season, as Spurs chairman Daniel Levy announced the club's intention to become the home of the NFL's first UK-based franchise.

There is one game less than 2017 - when four matches took place in London.

The NFL made it official Thursday, setting the details for the Eagles' first appearance in the league's International Series next season against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In the following two weeks, the Eagles will play the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Titans will play the Los Angeles Chargers, both at Wembley Stadium.

While Tottenham is sure that building work is on schedule on the White Hart Lane site where its previous stadium was demolished past year, the National Football League has contingency plans to move the October 14 game to Wembley Stadium.

"It's a great learning for us, it's another test for us", Mark Waller, the NFL's executive vice president of worldwide, said Thursday at the site of Tottenham's new stadium. According to the Tribune, NFL rules state teams in temporary home stadiums are required to play global games.

For those with temperamental auto batteries, it's a reminder the overnight lows may again range from 14 below zero to 20 below. The strongest winds will be found from west central to south central Minnesota where winds could gust to 40 miles per hour .

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan added: "I'm delighted Tottenham Hotspur's fantastic new stadium is joining the line-up of world-class sports arenas in our great city".

The Titans were initially scheduled to play the Chargers in Los Angeles, so Tennessee will not be giving up one of its eight home games next season at Nissan Stadium.

The Seahawks are one of six teams that have yet to play across the pond, and NFL UK's managing director has expressed a desire to get those teams over there, according to The News Tribune. This enables us to achieve important learnings relating to the fans' preferences, ticketing, team logistics and local transportation and infrastructure in order to create the best possible experience and environment.

The NFL kicked off its series of regular-season games in London in 2007, when the New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium on their way to winning the Super Bowl. For the first time, however, the games will be played in consecutive weeks, as the league continues to build out its operational structure in the United Kingdom.

The NFL has contributed $13.5 million toward the tailoring of the stadium.
