Bears, Vikings, Jaguars, Panthers named for 2024 games in Europe

The Jacksonville Jaguars will play their 12th game in franchise history in their home away from home during the 2024 regular season.

The Jaguars are among the four teams designated by the NFL on Thursday to take part in the International Games.

The Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings join the Jaguars as home teams in London next season, with the Carolina Panthers set to play in Munich, Germany.

Opponents and game dates will be announced this spring when the league schedule is finalized.

The Jaguars are set to play at Wembley Stadium, with the Vikings and Bears at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Panthers game will be played at Allianz Arena, the home of FC Bayern Munich.

The NFL announced last month that 2024 also will see the first-ever game played in South America, with Brazil as the host country. The teams have yet to be revealed.

“Taking our game to more fans around the world is a major priority for the league and its 32 teams, and we are delighted to be returning to London and Munich in 2024,” said Peter O’Reilly, executive vice president, club business, league events and international at the NFL. “Whether tackle or flag football, international passion for the game and the NFL continues to grow, and having our teams and their world-class athletes play games and engage with fans around the world is an important part of becoming a truly global sport.”

NFL clubs agreed to increase the number of international games to as many as eight beginning with the 2025 season.

The NFL committed to scheduling games in Mexico City when renovation projects are finalized at Estadio Azteca.
