The National Football League announced on Wednesday that the New Orleans Saints will host the Minnesota Vikings on October 2 at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. CT and the contest will be nationally televised on the NFL Network.
The contest against the Vikings will mark the third time that the Saints will play a regular season contest overseas, the first two being played at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The NFL also announced Wednesday four other games to be played outside of the United States.
The New York Giants will play the Green Bay Packers on October 9 in London at Tottenham, while the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars will play at Wembley Stadium on October 30.
The Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face off in Munich, Germany on November 13.
The San Francisco 49ers meanwhile will take on the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City on November 21.
In 2008, New Orleans made their overseas debut when they defeated the San Diego Chargers 37-32. In 2017, the Saints recorded the 14th shutout in team history and the first away from their home stadium when they defeated the Miami Dolphins 20-0.
The Saints trail the regular season series with the Vikings 19-12, but did win the last meeting between the two teams, a 52-33 victory on December 25, 2021.
The National Football League will be providing an allotment of tickets for sale to New Orleans Saints season ticketholders, as well as further information on any general sales opportunities in June.
