WEMBLEY TO HOST THREE MORE NFL GAMES

London's Wembley Stadium will host three NFL games in 2014, further fuelling the city's desire to create its own franchise. 

Jacksonville Jaguars, who have scheduled one match in London per season from 2013-2016 and are owned by Fulham FC's Shahid Khan, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders will play as the 'home' side, with the opponents yet to be decided. 

The Falcons and Raiders will be emigrating from the United States for a regular season game for the first time, meaning that as it stands before the announcement of the 'away' sides, 15 out of the 32 NFL franchises will have played at Wembley

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said: "Our fans in the UK have continued to demonstrate that they love football games and want more. 

"Both of this year's games in London sold out quickly. The fan enthusiasm for our sport continues to grow."

One regular season game has been held at Wembley since 2007, with two games in 2013. Minnesota Vikings beat Pittsburgh Steelers 34-27 in September, with the Jaguars due to face the San Francisco 49ers later in October.
