EAGAN, Minn. † The Vikings-Saints rivalry has been going strong for a decade-plus.

“We need all of our fan base supporting us, obviously from here, but I’d love to see a lot of you guys in the stands, supporting us in London,” Vikings Head Coach Kevin O’Connell said in a message to fans .

The Vikings-Saints game will be one of five total contests in the 2022 International Series.

The Packers (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium) and Jaguars (Wembley Stadium) were previously announced as participants in the other two London Games. The Cardinals (Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, Mexico) and Buccaneers (Munich, Germany) also were previously announced as participants.

New Orleans, Green Bay, Jacksonville, Arizona and Tampa Bay would be the hosts for these contests if played in the United States, but the NFL has emphasized it views International Series locations as neutral sites.

Minnesota was due to visit New Orleans in 2022 based on the NFL’s scheduling formula for a matchup determined by where the Vikings and Saints finished in their divisions last season (second in the NFC North and NFC South).

Vikings teammates Harrison Phillips and Eric Kendricks recently joined Saints linebacker Demario Davis in giving back to the Minneapolis community† They were already anticipating the matchup between the teams before finding out the locale.

“When it’s game time, we’re gonna talk,” Davis told Vikings.com. “Ain’t no friends on the field. But after it’s over? It’s all family.”
