The Jacksonville Jaguars and +San Francisco 49ers battle it out during the +NFL International Series game at Wembley Stadium last year in London.

The NFL is apparently quite happy with the success it's having overseas.

Having sold out almost every American pro-football game at Wembley Stadium in London, the league is considering expanding the number of games there to four by 2015. (The NFL already has three regular-season games set for London on the 2014 schedule.)

According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, the idea of adding an additional game looks to be on the agenda at this week's league meeting.

In November, the NFL announced the dates of its three regular-season London games for 2014:

The first game will be played in Week 4 on Sept. 28, with the +Oakland Raiders facing the +Miami Dolphins.

A month later, in Week 8, the +Atlanta Falcons will play the +Detroit Lions on Oct. 26.

And the Dallas Cowboys will play the +Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10 on Nov. 9.

All of the games will be played at Wembley Stadium, which is where the NFL has held all of the regular-season games in London since 2007.

If the popularity of American football keeps growing, +NFL could also be looking to move a franchise to London by 2017.
