SEATTLE - The Seattle Seahawks will play their first-ever game in London next season, the NFL announced Thursday.

The new schedule calls for the Seahawks to face the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 14 at the brand-new Tottenham stadium, just north of London. The new 60,000-plus capacity venue is being built on the site of the White Hart Lane stadium that was recently demolished.

Four other NFL teams will also play in London next season. The Philadelphia Eagles will face the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans will face the Los Angeles Chargers at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 21 or 28.

Game times for each contest will be announced at a later date. The NFL will release the full 2018 schedule around mid-April.
