CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers will head to London, England to play NFC South foe Tampa Bay.
This will be the first time in franchise history that the team will travel overseas for a game.
The dates, kickoff times and venues for the 2019 international games will not be released until the Spring.
“I’ve had the chance to play and coach in London before and those were unbelievable experiences,” said head coach Ron Rivera, who played in London with the Bears in the 1986 preseason and coached in London with the Chargers in the 2008 regular season. “The fans are outstanding and they have such fervor for the game. It’s a great opportunity for our franchise and for our players and coaches to get international exposure.”
The game will be considered a home game for the Buccaneers. Four NFL games will be played in the UK and one game will be played in Mexico next season.
