The Minnesota Vikings will play a home game at Wembley Stadium in London next September, ESPN reported Monday. An official announcement is expected at Tuesday's NFL owners meetings in Chicago. The Vikings are not moving into their new $975 million stadium until 2016, so they could play a series of games in London before then. The league, however, wants to see how next year's game goes before scheduling additional games there involving the Vikings. The Jacksonville Jaguars are already scheduled to host the San Francisco 49ers in London next year. A league spokesman told ESPN that a second London game has not been decided. Since the Vikings do not have a lease for their current stadium for next season, they have flexibility as to where they can play. The team has committed itself to playing a game in London. It is not known who the Vikings' opponent will be.
