KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) -- After their first-ever game south of the border was scratched, the Kansas City Chiefs are set to go back for a regular-season game in Mexico.

On Monday, the NFL announced its international schedule and, like last year, the Chiefs will play the Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico City. The Chiefs were supposed to play there in 2018, against Los Angeles’ other team, the Rams, but that game moved back to L.A. because the field at Estadio Azteca was in such poor conditions.

Importantly, it does not look like Chiefs’ fans are missing a chance to see the AFC West champs in action. According to the NFL, they will move the Chiefs at Chargers game.

The date and times are not set yet. Whenever it is, though, let’s hope the field is in better shape.

The league also said four more games will be played outside the U.S., all of them across the pond, in London. Those games are:

  • Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Chicago Bears at Oakland Raiders
  • Cincinnati Bengals at Los Angeles Rams
  • Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars

Those game times’ have not been announced either.
