 LONDON (AP) -The NFL will return to Britain next season.
The league, which held its first regular season game outside North America in London last October, said Thursday it would come back again in 2008.
The teams, date and venue will be announced during Super Bowl week late this month or in early February.
The New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins 13-10 in front of 81,176 fans at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 28.
``The game in London was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the entire 2007 season,'' NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. ``We had an overwhelmingly positive response to the event from all involved - the teams, our sponsors and business partners and of course the fans themselves.''
Wembley officials weren't so ecstatic because the game, played through a persistent drizzle, tore up the field and left it in rough shape for England's crucial European Championship qualifier against Croatia on Nov. 21. The English lost that game 3-2 and failed to qualify for Euro 2008.
Besides Wembley, the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, is another possible venue for next season's game.
