The first time the NFL hosted a game in London was when the Miami Dolphins faced off against the New York Giants on October 28, 2007. Since then, the NFL has hosted 3 games across the pond per year as a part of their International Series.
This week, rumors have been circulating that the Chargers could be moving to London full time.
See their response below:
Of the trade, Los Angeles Chargers Owner, Dean Spanos said:
"It's total f***ing bulls**t. We're not going to London. We're not going anywhere. We're playing in Los Angeles. This is our home, and this is where we are planning to be for a long f***ing time. Period... No consideration has been given to the Chargers playing anywhere other than Los Angeles at the new stadium in Hollywood Park next season and beyond. There have been no discussions of any kind between the NFL and the Chargers regarding moving to London."
The Chargers have been temporarily playing at the 27,000-seat soccer stadium that's home to Major League Soccer's L.A. Galaxy since moving to L.A. from San Diego three years ago. They will have a new stadium starting next season.
