Sky Sports has inked a five-year deal with the NFL, after crowds once again flocked to Wembley for a regular season game between the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins.

That means more American football is coming to Sky, including the legendary Monday Night Football.

Sky will show more than 80 live matches per season, starting in 2015. It will broadcast up to five games a week during the regular season, as well as the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

The deal also includes the NFL's International Series, which sees teams travel to the UK to face off against one another.

As well as Monday Night Football, fans can expect Sunday double-headers and matches on Thursday and Saturday nights.

A feature called the NFL RedZone will also bring "all the drama and scores from around the NFL" and is accessed via the red button.

"We're delighted to be awarded the rights to Monday Night Football as part of this fantastic new deal for even more live American football," Barney Francis, Sky Sports managing director, said in a statement.

"The agreement means Sky Sports viewers can enjoy all the drama, excitement and unpredictability from the NFL until at least 2019. Our partnership with the NFL spans two decades and we look forward to helping the sport continue its huge growth in popularity in the UK and Ireland for years to come."
