Broncos won’t play in London or Germany next season

The NFL has announced four designated “home” teams for international games in 2024, and the Denver Broncos are not among them.

The Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars will “host” games in London, England and the Carolina Panthers will be the “home” team for a game in Munich, Germany next fall.

We know the Broncos won’t be the “away” team for the London or Germany games because the Bears, Vikings and Jaguars are not on Denver’s 2024 schedule, and the team’s game against the Panthers will be played at home.

There is one more international game on the NFL’s 2024 schedule set to be played in São Paulo, Brazil, but the Broncos are also unlikely to play in that contest.

The Miami Dolphins seem likely to be chosen as the “home” team for the Brazil game, but that has not been officially announced yet (the NFL said Thursday that the Brazil home team will be revealed “in the coming months”).

If Miami is the Brazil host as expected, Denver won’t have an international game next season because the Dolphins are not on the Broncos’ list of 2024 opponents.

Denver will play an international game by 2030 because every team is required to play at least one international contest every eight years (the club played in London in 2022).

If the Broncos are selected as a future “home” team, their most likely international destination is Mexico. The NFL will not play an international game in Mexico in 2024 due to Estadio Azteca renovations, but the league plans to return to Mexico City once those renovations are complete.
