LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings will be hosting a game at London’s Wembley Stadium next year.

Vikings vice president Lester Bagley said Sunday that the details will be worked out at the NFL owners’ meeting Tuesday in Chicago.

But 2013 marks the first season the NFL will play two regular-season games in London in the same year. The San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars will play on Oct. 27, 2013.

The Jaguars game is the first in a deal that will have Jacksonville hosting games in London for four consecutive seasons.
