Twickenham will stage NFL matches from next year, it has been announced.

The NFL and Rugby Football Union on Tuesday unveiled a partnership that will see the traditional home of English rugby host at least three regular-season games over a three-year period.

The deal will start in October 2016, with the teams for the first International Series game at the venue to be announced later this year.

The agreement also gives the NFL the opportunity to stage two extra games over the same period.

The NFL has enjoyed great success in staging matches at Wembley and recently extended its agreement with that stadium, with a minimum of two games per year to be played there through to 2020.
