The National Football League has announced the opponents, dates, and locations for the five international Games to be played in 2023 across London, UK and Frankfurt, Germany.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will kick off the 2023 NFL International Games on Sunday, October 1, as they play the Atlanta Falcons at Wembley Stadium, in what will be their landmark 10th regular season home game in London.
The London focus then shifts to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as the Buffalo Bills take on the Jacksonville Jaguars* on Sunday, October 8. This game for Jacksonville means they will play two regular season games outside of the US – a first for the NFL.
The following Sunday, 15 October, the Tennessee Titans will play the Baltimore Ravens, also at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the only purpose-built NFL stadium outside of the US, to wrap the 2023 NFL London Games.
As part of its commitment to play regular season games in Germany for the next four years (beginning in 2022) the NFL will play two games in 2023 in Frankfurt, having played the inaugural Germany game in Munich back in November 2022.
The Super Bowl LVII Champion Kansas City Chiefs kick off the 2023 NFL Frankfurt Games on Sunday, November 5, as they play the Miami Dolphins at Frankfurt Stadium, home of Eintracht Frankfurt.
The following weekend, Sunday, November 12, the New England Patriots face the Indianapolis Colts, also at Frankfurt Stadium, to complete the 2023 NFL International Games.

"We can't wait to welcome teams to London for three brilliant weekends of football in October," said Henry Hodgson, GM NFL UK. "To see the Jacksonville Jaguars extend their stay in the UK and play two regular season games here this year is indicative of the Jags' commitment to continuing to grow their fanbase here long-term. We have staged games in London since 2007, with interest and momentum in the sport here in the UK rising year on year and look forward to giving fans the best NFL experience yet in 2023." "In what promises to be a great spectacle of football for our global fans, we are thrilled to announce the five games to be played internationally in 2023, a record number of regular season games in Europe in a season," said Peter O'Reilly, NFL Executive Vice President, Club Business, Major Events & International.
"We are excited to bring three games to London once again, a city with a huge love for the sport and a passionate fan base across the UK. We are also pleased to confirm that the two games in Germany will be played in Frankfurt, a city steeped in NFL heritage. We look forward to staging both games at Eintracht Frankfurt's Stadium, building on the incredible atmosphere experienced at last season's game in Munich."

Todd Kline, Chief Commercial Officer, said: "Our NFL gamedays in London N17 are special occasions where we see fans from all over the world descend on our capital city, benefitting local businesses and the wider economy – this year will see that once again and we're incredibly excited for the 2023 London Games to arrive in Tottenham." "We are excited to again compete in the NFL's International Games and face off against the Falcons and Bills in London," Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars QB, said. "Hosting the Falcons at Wembley Stadium will be awesome only to be followed by playing on the road against the Bills at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. I'm pumped for the experience and know the support from Duval will be strong at both games."
There will be no international game in Mexico in 2023 due to renovations taking place in Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.
