Jaguars Confirm London Games From 2013-2016

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been chosen by Commissioner Roger Goodell to play one regular season game in London for four consecutive years beginning in 2013. The Jaguars replaced the St. Louis Rams, who withdrew themselves last week.

New Jaguars owner Shad Khan expressed excitement that his team was chosen to represent the Jacksonville area in London with this statement:

I am very proud to share the news that your Jacksonville Jaguars will be announced today as the featured home team in London as part of the NFL International Series.

Beginning in 2013, the Jaguars will play one of our regular season home games in Wembley Stadium through 2016 as part of the National Football League's effort to grow the NFL brand throughout the world. The Jaguars and the entire Jacksonville community will be a centerpiece in the NFL's efforts over these four seasons, and that's a very exciting and rewarding development for all of us. My ambition is to make the Jaguars one of the signature franchises in the NFL and to see Jacksonville realize its full potential as a destination for commerce, tourism and living. An annual home game in London over four years, supported by initiatives in Jacksonville and throughout the United Kingdom to further develop our following, will help us achieve these goals and much more.

I am honored to welcome NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to Jacksonville today to announce the news, and in the weeks to come the Jaguars will have more information for our fans, partners and friends in the community. I wanted you to hear the news from me directly, and I thank you for the consistent and impressive support you've given the Jaguars over the years. I know great things are ahead for the Jacksonville Jaguars!
