Seahawks, Buccaneers to play in first NFL game in Germany

The game between the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be played at the home of soccer club Bayern Munich.

LONDON, UK — The first regular-season NFL game in Germany will be between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks at the home of soccer club Bayern Munich.

The game will take place at the Allianz Arena on Nov. 13, the NFL said Wednesday. Frankfurt will also be staging a regular-season game in Germany during the next four years.

Tampa Bay's Tom Brady could become the first quarterback to start a game in three foreign countries. He won two games with the New England Patriots in London and another in Mexico City.

The schedule for the three NFL games in London next season was also announced, with the Green Bay Packers becoming the final team to play in Europe.

The Packers will take on the New York Giants on Oct. 9 at the home of Premier League soccer team Tottenham, a week after the Minnesota Vikings play the New Orleans Saints at the same stadium.

On Oct. 30, Wembley Stadium will host the Denver Broncos against the Jacksonville Jaguars, who played games there for seven straight seasons until 2019 before playing at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last year.

The final international game will be between the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 21 in Mexico City.

The Seahawks are the second most popular NFL team in Germany, according to a news release from the Seahawks. The team said the German Sea Hawkers chapter has more than 1,300 members, representing about 10-percent of Sea Hawkers worldwide.

"I'm very excited for everyone," said Seahawks linebacker Aaron Donkor in a statement provided by the Seahawks. Donkor is from Aachen, Germany and joined the Seahawks last season as part of the NFL's International Player Pathway Program. "It's exciting for the team, for Seahawks fans, for NFL fans in Germany."
