“The Jaguars are honored to return to London, our home away from home, and continue in our mission to grow the NFL and promote Jacksonville in the UK and beyond,” said Jaguars team owner Shad Khan.
“With Urban Meyer as our head coach, we’ll be arriving with an entirely new look and attitude that I’m confident will meet the approval of our Union Jax supporters. I’m also hoping that many of our loyal fans in Jacksonville can join us in London for a great experience and to ratchet up the homefield advantage. Go Jags!”
Since 2013, the Jaguars are 3-4 in London, their latest game being a 26-3 loss to the Texans. Miami is 1-3 in London, with their latest game being a 20-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
The Jaguars and Dolphins locked horns last year on Thursday Night Football, with the Dolphins emerging victorious by a score of 31-13.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were no games played in London for the first time since 2006. The Jaguars lead the NFL in games played in London, and the London games have long been a goal of owner Shad Khan.
The NFL has also said there will be no games in Mexico due to the pandemic. The NFL played games in Mexico from 2016-2019.
The game will take place in Tottenham Hotspur FC’s stadium, and will be broadcasted on NFL Network.
