Washington, Nov 7: London's iconic Wembley Stadium will host three National Football League (NFL) games next season.

The Miami Dolphins and New York Jets will play one of their two regular-season games in London Oct 4, followed by Jacksonville Jaguars-Buffalo Bills Oct 25 and Kansas City Chiefs against Detroit Lions Nov 1, reports Xinhua.

"We are very appreciative of the outstanding support from our fans in Britain, not only for the games at Wembley, but for all of the related NFL events we have hosted throughout the city," said NFL executive vice president Mark Waller.

"We believe we have a great 2015 schedule that will continue to attract new fans to our sport and strengthen the bonds with our existing fans.

"To provide British fans the opportunity to see games on consecutive weekends, to see new teams, and to attend a division game, which feature some of the most passionate rivalries in our sport, are signs of the growth and depth of our British fan base."
