The NFL has begun the slow process of rolling out tidbits of its 2020 schedule, and on Friday, the league announced that the Arizona Cardinals will host a game in Mexico City this season.

The opponent and game date/time have not been announced. The game will replace one of their eight home games, which include the Rams, 49ers, Seahawks, Eagles, Washington, Bills, Dolphins, and Lions.

This will be the second time Arizona has placed a game in Mexico City, with their first game coming against the San Francisco 49ers in 2005, and also marking the first regular season game to take place in Mexico City.

Last year’s Mexico City game featured the Chargers hosting the Chiefs. Prior to that, the Rams were to host the Chiefs but that game was relocated. In 2016 and 2017, the Raiders hosted games in Mexico City, facing the Texans and Patriots, respectively. The 2017 game is the only one that was not scheduled for a prime time slot.
