The Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play Nov. 13 in Munich in the NFL’s first-ever regular-season game in Germany, the league announced Wednesday.

The game will have a 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff, with Tampa Bay designated as the home team.

This will be the Buccaneers’ fourth international game. They are 0-3 in three games in London, losing to the New England Patriots in 2009, the Chicago Bears in 2011 and the Carolina Panthers in 2019.

This will mark the Seahawks’ third international regular-season game in franchise history. They beat the Buffalo Bills in Toronto in 2012 and the Raiders in London in 2018.

The Seahawks have a German-born player in linebacker Aaron Donkor, who was allocated to Seattle last year as part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program. Donkor, who is from Achern, about 200 miles west of Munich, spent the 2021 season on Seattle’s practice squad. The Seahawks received another roster exemption for Donkor this week.

The NFL announced in February that it will play four games in Germany over the next four seasons, two apiece in Munich and Frankfurt.
