Fans are queuing up to buy tickets for the NFL International Series 2016 as demand for next year’s clashes in the UK soars, according to data from Viagogo.

The NFL returns to the capital for a series of matches at London’s Wembley and Twickenham stadiums in October 2016.

Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars kick off the series with a clash at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 2 October 2016.

The NFC East Team then take on the St. Louis Rams at Twickenham on 23 October, before the Washington Redskins face the Cincinnati Bengals at Wembley on Sunday 30 October.

The NFL International Series is regularly one of Viagogo’s most popular sporting events – and tickets for next year’s games are due to go on sale at 10:00 GMT on Tuesday 15 December 2015.

“The passion our UK fans have shown for the NFL is overwhelming,” said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

“We are very appreciative of the strong and growing fan support, not only for the games, but for all of the related NFL events we host in the UK throughout the year.

“We look forward to welcoming new fans to their first NFL game in 2016 and welcoming back thousands of others that are helping our sport grow to new levels of popularity in London and beyond.”

The Jaguars will return to London for a fourth consecutive year, while the St. Louis Rams will head to the capital for the first time since 2012.

Meanwhile, the Bengals will play the first game in franchise history beyond the borders of the United States when they take on Washington.
