In April, English Premier League side Tottenham sent word to the U.S. that they had no problem sharing their new stadium with an NFL team when and if the league put a team on that side of the Atlantic.

Under a deal announced Wednesday, the NFL will play a minimum of two regular-season games a year at Premier League club Tottenham’s new stadium over a 10-year period, the soccer power announced.

“With growing enthusiasm for the NFL in the United Kingdom, we are committed to hosting NFL games in world-class venues and are excited to partner with Tottenham Hotspur to play games at their future stadium,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement from the team. “We share a vision and commitment to creating the best experience for our teams, fans and the local community.”

The NFL currently has two years remaining on its deal with Wembley Stadium, the 90,000-seat north London venue where 11 regular-season games have been played since 2007. England’s national soccer stadium will host three more NFL games this year.
