The Chargers will play the New Orleans Saints at Wembley Stadium in London on Oct. 26, sources confirmed today.
“We want to go,” Chargers president Dean Spanos said. “I'm cautiously optimistic.”
Sources said the Chargers have been speaking with the league for more than two months about the game. Spanos is a member of the league's International Committee.
This will be the second regular-season NFL game played outside North America. The New York Giants and Miami Dolphins played at Wembley Stadium this past October.
The game will be the Chargers' eighth next season, and they will have a bye the next week.
