    I'd imagine with the tight turnaround in completion, and the fact that WHL station won't be finished with the refurb until 2019 they're exercising caution with just the one this year.

    “Tottenham Stadium” so no accidental leek of a name such or clue as to using WHL

    Since it will only be open for half the year that's probably fair enough. Also gives us an extra couple of months to have the nfl part fully ready.

    Could it simply be that it’s only one game this year because this year is only half a season at the new stadium, and the deal is 2 games per season?

    NFL regular season only runs September to December, so that I don’t think the stadium only coming online at that time would make a difference contractually.

    That’s a better set of fixtures than we normally see...so not sure if that is real haha

    Denver and Pittsburgh both giving up a home game is possibly surprising

    These are the best games to ever come over, looking forward to going to the new ground and seeing Oakland- Chargers

    When the Broncos head over to London, I might try to do a sneaky trip home to watch them and Spurs. You never know, could be Spurs on a Saturday and the Broncos on the Sunday.
