LONDON (FOX 9) - London is calling for the Minnesota Vikings.
The team has been designated to host a regular season game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during the 2024 season, the Vikings announced Thursday.
Few details have been released, with the Vikings saying the date and opponent will be confirmed as part of the league's full schedule announcement in May.
"We are honored to once again represent the NFL in the continued effort to make the game of football more accessible globally," Mark Wilf, owner/president of the Minnesota Vikings, said Thursday in a team issued statement. "We’ve seen tremendous international support of the Vikings with our previous three London games and with our successful bid to land the United Kingdom as a global market. Our focus will be on winning for the fourth consecutive time in London, along with replicating the incredible game day environment we enjoy in Minnesota and creating a memorable experience for our partners and fans."
This will be the fourth regular season game the Vikings have played in London since 2013 and their second game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in three years. Traveling to London has proven successful for the Vikings — they're 3-0 in London.
The Vikings beat the New Orleans Saints 28-25 in Week 4 of the 2022 season, the first for Kevin O'Connell as head coach, on Greg Joseph's walk-off field goal.
Minnesota's 2024 home opponents are the Packers, Bears, Cardinals, Texans, Colts, 49ers, Falcons and Jets. The Bears and Jaguars are also getting games at Tottenham Hotspur, and the Panthers are getting a game in Munich, Germany. It is unlikely the Vikings would host the Jets in London, with it being Aaron Rodgers' return to Minneapolis.
We'll find out in May who the opponent will be.
