HOUSTON (AP) - The NFL will play regular-season games in Britain through 2016.

Team owners approved a resolution Tuesday at their fall meetings, with the number of games per year potentially increasing. No venues, dates or teams have been decided.

Teams can volunteer to play at least one regular-season home game per year in Britain for up to five years. Tampa Bay will host Chicago on Oct. 23 in London, the fifth straight year the NFL has held an October game there.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says because of strong fan support, “we are confident hosting additional games in the U.K. will be well received.”
