NFL London Games 2019: New Tottenham stadium and Wembley dates revealed to host four regular season games
Three 2018 regular season matches were held in England with all being held at Wembley.
One was scheduled to be at the new Tottenham arena but delays to its construction meant it was moved.
The £1billion stadium is the first purpose built NFL stadium outside of the United States.
It is equipped with two playing surfaces, one for NFL games and one for Spurs to use.
The inaugural NFL game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will see the Oakland Raiders host the Chicago Bears on Sunday, October 6.
The Raiders have been a fan favourite in the UK and made the journey to London last year. This is ahead of their move to Las Vegas in 2020.
