The Vikings are heading back to London next season.
The Vikings and the NFL announced this morning that the Vikings will play the Browns in one of four games played in England next year. Their game will take place at Twickenham Stadium in either Week 7 or Week 8.
“We are honored to once again represent the NFL on a global level and help grow the game of football,” Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf said in a statement. “This is a unique opportunity to continue highlighting the Vikings brand on an international stage and to give our fans around the world another opportunity to see their favorite team up close.”
The Vikings will be the road team, so they won’t lose a home game here.
This will be the second time the Vikings play in London. In 2013, they beat the Steelers, 34-27, in front of 83,518 fans at Wembley Stadium.
