ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --It's only a matter of time before the Broncos leave the U.S. for a regular-season game again, and the possibilities will only increase in the coming years.

Wednesday at league meetings, NFL owners approved a resolution that continues the NFL International Series through the 2025 season and could include games in other nations outside of the United Kingdom, where the league has played annual games at London's Wembley Stadium since 2007.

Eighteen of the league's 32 clubs have played regular-season games at Wembley, including the Broncos in 2010. That number will increase to 20 as the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs visit in Weeks 7 and 8.

Before the 2010 game, the Broncos played seven preseason American Bowl games overseas, including games in Berlin, London, Mexico City, Barcelona, Sydney and two in Tokyo. The Broncos' overall total of eight international games is third-highest in the league.

The Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers also staged a 2005 game at Mexico City's massive Estadio Azteca. That attracted 103,467 for the first NFL regular-season game to be played outside the borders of the United States.

The Buffalo Bills also played six regular-season home games at Toronto's Rogers Centre from 2008-13.

Possible hosts for future games in the NFL International Series include stadiums in Mexico, Brazil and Germany, in addition to the United Kingdom and Canada.
