Jaguars Set To 'Host' Four Games In London Between 2013-2016

The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking to grow their fan base by any means necessary. Even if it means having to fly to another continent to play a home game.

The team will announce on Tuesday it's plan to be the home team for one game each year in London between 2013-2016, according to ESPN.com. The St. Louis Rams were originally slated to do so, but have since pulled out.

While the Jaguars have been at the center of many talks involving relocation when Los Angeles comes up, nobody expects the team to pick up and move to England anytime soon. The NFL is only playing one game a year there as a showcase right now, a far cry from actually having a team based there.

Owner Shad Khan is simply trying to bring in some revenue for a team that has been in desperate need of it.

Jacksonville fans can rest assured they'll still have seven games to cheer on their team in the Jags real home stadium.
