The NFL announced Wednesday the preseason opponents for all 32 teams—specific dates and kickoff times are still TBD—and the Seahawks will begin preseason play by hosting the Indianapolis Colts at CenturyLink Field.
That game against the Colts will take place during the second week of August, so sometime between August 9 and August 11 (the Sounders play at CenturyLink Field on Sunday, August 12). Seattle will then hit the road for its next two preseason games, playing at the Los Angeles Chargers and at the Minnesota Vikings. The Seahawks will then finish their preseason with a home game against the Oakland Raiders, the 13th consecutive Week 4 exhibition matchup between those two teams due to their close geographical proximity to each other. All preseason games can be seen on Q13 FOX.
Because the Seahawks are scheduled to play the AFC West and NFC North during the 2018 regular season, they will play the Vikings, Raiders and Chargers both in the preseason and regular season this year. Seattle’s trip to Minnesota will be its first since the Vikings opened U.S. Bank Stadium in 2016, and they will play the Chargers in their temporary home, the StubHub Center, for the second straight preseason.
The regular season schedule has not yet been announced, though it is traditionally released sometime before the draft, so that should be coming later this month. While the dates of games are still to be determined, the Seahawks’ 2018 opponents are already set. In addition to their usual slate of NFC West games, the Seahawks will host Green Bay, Minnesota, Dallas, Kansas City and the Los Angeles Chargers, and play road games in Chicago, Detroit, Carolina, Denver and London (against Oakland).
Single-game ticket information for preseason and regular season games will be announced following the regular season schedule announcement.
