Tampa Bay Buccaneers versus Seattle Seahawks will be the first regular season game in the history of the National Football League (NFL) to be played in Germany! On 13 November at 15:30 CET, the matchup between the team of star quarterback Tom Brady and the Seahawks will take place at Munich’s Allianz Arena. FC Bayern’s home stadium has been chosen as the venue for two of the four International Series matches that will be played in Germany over the next four years, with the other two taking place in Frankfurt.
Andreas Jung, FC Bayern board member for marketing: “We are delighted to be able to host this exciting match between the Buccaneers and the Seahawks at the Allianz Arena. This is the next step in our long-term partnership with the NFL - and we look forward to welcoming American football fans to our state-of-the-art arena.”
