The NFL's new €100m coach and his team will be in London next year

Eagles to play Jaguars in London in 2018 regular season

National Football League teams loathe to give up a home game to travel to London.

The Raiders are only going to be in Oakland a couple more years before moving to Las Vegas.

That surface is two metres lower than the grass pitch so nobody's view is obstructed by the coaches and players who stand on the sidelines - an issue that Wembley gets around by closing the first five rows of seats.

Below is the Raiders' complete news release on their Week 6 matchup with Seattle.

Tottenham Hotspur's new 61,000-seat stadium will host an National Football League game for the first time when the Seattle Seahawks play the Oakland Raiders on 14 October.

Since regular-season games were first played in London in 2007, 21 have been played in the British capital featuring 26 different teams.

But the other major change is the move to White Hart Lane, which now has a workforce of 1,000 builders trying to get it ready for the start of the next football season. Tottenham's new stadium becomes the third venue to stage a regular-season game in the United Kingdom, joining Wembley Stadium and Twickenham Stadium. The Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Philadelphia Eagles and the Los Angeles Chargers will host the Tennessee Titans.

The goal of the pilot is to "move money as quickly as information", Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple , said in a statement . Ripple's price dropped about 20% when Coinbase announced that they're not keen on adding any new coins at this time.

"We have created something very unique", Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said at the announcement of fixtures.

Eagles fans can rest assured knowing that the game will be one of the Jaguars' home games that will be moved, meaning there will still be eight home dates at Lincoln Financial Field in 2018.

Gridiron fans will be able to sample the action once again at Wembley, as well as at Tottenham Hotspur's brand new stadium.

As Dolphins fans know the worldwide series can play hell with travel. New York Giants in Berlin, Germany; July 1996 vs. Pittsburg Steelers in Tokyo, Japan; August 1999 vs. Denver Broncos in Sydney, Australia. The Raiders, meanwhile, have emerged from the doldrums in recent years and are in the process of relocating - although Las Vegas, not London, will be their new home. The NFL has said that all teams will need to play in one of the games so it is likely that those three remaining will be three of the potential teams for 2019.

Mark Waller, NFL Executive Vice-President of Events and global, said: "This is another important year as we develop our plans for London and the UK".

There will be a total of three matches in the 2018 London schedule with Wembley Stadium hosting the two other clashes.

The new stadium will only host one game this year, but has plans to host additional games in the same season moving forward. This enables us to achieve important learnings relating to the fans' preferences, ticketing, team logistics and local transportation and infrastructure in order to create the best possible experience and environment. We have known since the season ended that the Silver and Black will be playing its AFC West rivals, the AFC North, the NFC West, the Indianapolis Colts and the Miami Dolphins in 2018.
