The Oakland Raiders take on Seattle Seahawks at Wembley Stadium this evening in the first of three International Games to be played at Wembley in 2018.
Jon Gruden’s Raiders have appeared on this stage once before, losing 38-14 to Miami Dolphins back in 2014.
For the Seahawks – led by star quarterback Russell Wilson – this is a whole new experience, as they are one of only six NFL teams yet to appear in the UK.
Two of those other sides – Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles – will be making their London bows in the next fortnight, taking on Los Angeles Chargers and Wembley veterans Jacksonville Jaguars respectively.
The match will be shown live on the BBC and on Sky Sports. Kick-off 6.00pm
The BBC’s coverage starts at 5.30pm on BBC Two until 7pm, where coverage continues on the BBC Red Button.
Sky’s coverage gets underway on Sky Sports Action from 5.00pm.
Baltimore Ravens’ clash with Tennessee Titans will also be shown on Sky Sports on Sunday evening from 9.25pm.
