The NFL has expanded its annual London series to three games next season.

The home teams are the Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders.

"Our fans in the UK have continued to demonstrate that they love football and want more," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. "Both of this year’s games in London sold out quickly. The fan enthusiasm for our sport continues to grow. By playing two games in the UK this year, we are creating more fans. We hope that with three games in London next year we will attract even more people to our game."

The Jaguars are set for at least one game a season in London through 2016.

"The International Series of regular-season games has increased NFL fan interest in the UK, with a current fan base of more than 12 million, including 2.5 million avid fans, a 30 percent increase in fans in the past two years," the NFL stated. "Participation in amateur football in the UK has risen since the start of the International Series, growing by approximately 15 percent per year since 2007."
