The Chicago Bears will play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in London during the 2011 season, according to sources familiar with the situation.

The NFL regular-season schedule will be released next week with dates and times.

Chicago last played in London on Aug. 3, 1986, when the Bears beat the Dallas Cowboys 17-6. It was the season after the Bears won Super Bowl XX.

The San Francisco 49ers beat the Denver Broncos 24-16 in London last season.

All games are contingent on a resolution of the NFL's current labor woes.

"The Carmen, Jurko & Harry Show" on ESPN 1000 first reported the news, which was confirmed by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
