Later in the preseason, the Raiders will take on the Seattle Seahawks, who, like the Rams, they are playing in the regular season as well. The Raiders vs. Seahawks regular season game was supposed to be the first NFL game played inside the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but that honor will have to wait for another season.
While the two teams will play in London this Fall, they will not be playing inside the new stadium, which has yet to finish being built. Instead, the teams will play inside Wembley Stadium, as it was announced earlier Monday.
NFLUK tweeted this out earlier in the day.
The new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is going to be quite the venue, and you can be sure it will host an NFL game during the 2019 regular season. It seems the Raiders always are involved in International play, so keep an eye out when next season’s schedule is released, as the Silver and Black could be one of the two teams to christen the new stadium next Fall.
While playing games across the pond are a good way for the NFL to improve on their already stellar popularity, you may want to make sure the stadium is going to be built on time. Still, this game is going to be a great challenge for the Raiders, as they will be taking on one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Russell Wilson.
