Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play international game in 2019

Raymond James Stadium will see one less Bucs home game in 2019.

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play in one of the NFL's five international games in 2019.

Four of the games will be played in London, with one in Mexico City.

The league has not yet confirmed in which of those two cities the Bucs will play, although officials say they will be the home team no matter where they end up traveling.

The date and opponent won't be revealed until Spring 2019.

The matchup will count as one of the Bucs' 10 home games next year.

While that does mean one less game at Raymond James Stadium, it's also a requirement for Tampa Bay to host the Super Bowl in 2021. NFL owners agreed to that requirement in 2014.
