The New Orleans Saints will play the Miami Dolphins in London in 2017 as part of the league's international series. The NFL's official United Kingdom Twitter account confirmed the news. There has been no official release from the teams or the league. It will be a Dolphins home game. The stadium, date and time have not been announced.

New Orleans last played in Wembley Stadium in 2008, when it beat San Diego 37-32.

“It’s always better if it’s someone else’s home game," Saints Coach Sean Payton said during his Monday teleconference. "Our experience, having been over there once, was you get a real good fan base of all sorts of teams, so it becomes a little bit more of a neutral game, if you will. But I think we gain something going over there. As an organization, it gives you a chance to bring your team closer together and also, a chance to bring the organization closer together. Our experience was good. The way we handled the itinerary and how we practiced in preparing for that game ended up working out well. Obviously, when you win the game your recollection is a positive experience.”
