The opponents and locations for the Seahawks’ 2016 preseason games are set: Seattle will open at Kansas City then host Minnesota and Dallas before closing on the road against Oakland.

The NFL announced the preseason schedules for all 32 teams on Thursday, at least parts of them. The home game against Minnesota will be Aug. 18 and the finale in Oakland will be Sept. 1 – both are Thursdays – but the exact dates for the other two along with the start times for all four have yet to be revealed.

For now, here’s what Seattle’s preseason schedule looks like:

• at Kansas City, Aug. 11-15
• vs. Minnesota, Aug. 18
• vs. Dallas, Aug. 25-28
• at Oakland, Sept. 1

This will be the 11th straight year that Seattle closes out the preseason against Oakland.

The Seahawks home and away opponents for the 2016 regular season have been set. The order, dates and times will be announced sometime in the next few weeks, along with full preseason schedule.

710 ESPN Seattle will carry all preseason and regular-season Seahawks games.
