LONDON (AP) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play the Chicago Bears at London’s Wembley Stadium in October if the NFL season isn’t altered by a labor dispute.

The league said Monday that the Bucs will return to the British capital for the second time in three years, having lost to the New England Patriots at Wembley in 2009. For the Bears, the game on Oct. 23 will mark the 25th anniversary of having played a preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys at the stadium.

It is the fifth year in a row that the NFL stages a regular-season game in London.

However, the league and its locked-out players have yet to reach a deal on a new labor agreement, meaning the 2011 season could be in jeopardy.
