The NFL will schedule a second regular season game outside North America in 2012, Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal reported Tuesday.

According to Kaplan, the NFL, which already schedules one game per year in London, will add a second overseas game in 2012. Kaplan indicated his source was NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, noting on Twitter, “‚ĶRoger Goodell told me after the NY SB press conference he expects there to be 2 overseas regular season games next year.”

Kaplan followed with a later Tweet that hinted London would get the additional game, rather than another site being selected. He wrote, “My understanding is league would double down on London, focusing efforts there.”

Chicago is set to play Tampa Bay at Wembley Stadium in London on Oct. 23. The annual London game began in 2007 when Miami played the New York Giants.
