The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Chicago Bears at Wembley Stadium in October if the NFL season goes ahead despite a labour dispute.

The league said yesterday that the Bucs will return to the British capital for the second time in three years, having lost to the New England Patriots in 2009. It is the fifth year in a row that the NFL stages a regular-season game in London.

However, the league and its players have yet to reach a deal on a new labour agreement, meaning the 2011 season is in jeopardy.
