"It's a great learning for us, it's another test for us", Mark Waller, the NFL's executive vice president of worldwide, said Thursday at the site of Tottenham's new stadium.

We'll leave the past in the past, though, and look ahead to an enticing 2018 lineup.

"It has been 10 years since we last played in London, and other than the outcome of the game back in 2008, the experience there among the global fans was pretty cool", Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers told the team's website.

The new stadium was designed with NFL-sized changing rooms and to ensure the grass soccer pitch can be retracted and kept under lights below the stands when the artificial surface is required for NFL.

The NFL is set to release their 2018 worldwide London schedule but leaks have already hit the internet. For the Raiders, Chargers, and Seahawks, it is going to be a brutal cross country/cross pond trip.

One of those fixtures will be played on 21 October and the other on 28 October, with the decision on that still to be taken.

That game is followed by a double-header at Wembley with the Philadelphia Eagles making their debut in London against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

"Subject to unforeseen circumstances I am very confident sitting here today that the season we are about to enter into, we will be playing our games here - from the start of the season". They play the Chargers, who could host another game in London next year.

With the National Football League committed to holding two games a season at Wembley until 2020, that means London can expect to stage five games in either 2019 or 2020 - a move that would only increase the clamour for a full-time franchise in the United Kingdom capital.

For the Dolphins it is a reprieve after offering up to play last season. Tottenham and the National Football League have a 10-year contract to play games overseas. This year's new twist is to play games on three consecutive weekends. "This is one of the cornerstones of our vision for creating a world-class sports and leisure destination that will make Tottenham a hive of activity 365 days a year, and drive the regeneration of one of the most deprived areas of London".

"NFL games bring people to the stadium from all over the world, economic spend to the local area and are among the highlights of the Wembley events calendar", Martin Glenn said. "We still have another six or seven months of really hard work of construction".

"Since we last visited London in 2008, the NFL's popularity has continued to grow in the UK". Those interested in attending any of the games can go to www.ticketmaster.com/nfl for information.
