Green Bay Packers to face Philadelphia Eagles in NFL’s first regular-season game in Brazil

The NFL today confirmed that the Green Bay Packers will face the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL’s first regular-season game in Brazil on September 6.

The NFL’s first contest in South America will be played at Sao paulo’s Corinthians Arena, home to Brazilian football club Corinthians.

The match will be contested during the opening week of the 2024 NFL season and mark the first time since 1970 that the NFL will play a Friday Night Game on the opening weekend.

The Eagles had been selected to host the Brazil contest earlier, but it was uncertain which club would be their opponent.

Four other regular-season NFL games will be played outside US markets — two at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, another at London’s Wembley Stadium and the other at Munich, Germany.
