Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will host its first NFL game this Sunday, starting with a match between Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders, as part of Spurs' ten-year partnership with the NFL.

The match will be followed by a fixture between the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers a week later. 

Since Tuesday's match between Tottenham and Bayern Munich, the club have begun the process of converting their 62,214-seat stadium in preparation for Sunday's game.
