New England Patriots to play game in Germany next season

FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots will play a regular season game in Germany in 2023, the National Football League announced Thursday.

The game will mark New England’s first-ever visit to Germany. The Kansas City Chiefs will also play a game in the country.

In a news release, the NFL said, “The Chiefs and Patriots are part of the NFL’s International Home Marketing Area program, which sees teams secure international marketing rights in countries beyond the US, with both sides having been awarded rights in Germany.”

Destination cities for the two games will be announced later this year, but the NFL previously confirmed that Munich and Frankfurt will stage games in Germany over the next four years.

The Seattle Seahawks played the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in front of a sell-out crowd at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena in Munich last year.

The Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, and Jacksonville Jaguars will each play games in the United Kingdom.

Two of those games will be played at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, while another game will be played at Wembley Stadium.

The opponents for all of the announced games have not yet been announced.
