New York (USA), .- The National Football League (NFL) released its calendar for the season of 2019, which includes five international matches, one in Mexico and four in London.
The season includes a game that will be held at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City on Monday, November 18, between the Chiefs of Kansas City and the Chargers of Los Angeles.
The NFL agreed to take one of its regular season matches to Mexico.
The NFL shares return to Mexico after last season, in November 2018, the league decided to suspend the game between the Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams, the team that played the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots and lost by 13-3.
The decision of the league was due to the poor conditions of the field at the Estadio Azteca and moved that game to the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles.
