Packers, Eagles in São Paulo, Brazil; teams meet on Sept. 6, 2024

The NFL announced on Wednesday, April 10 that the first-ever regular season game in Brazil is set for Friday, Sept. 6 – and will feature the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles. 

It will be the first time in more than 50 years that an NFL game will be played on a Friday night on opening weekend.

First announced in December, the matchup will take place at the Corinthians Arena. A news release says the venue is home to Brazilian soccer team the SC Corinthians and hosted both the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games. The last time the NFL had a Friday night game on its opening weekend was on Sept. 18, 1970, when the Los Angeles Rams hosted the St. Louis Cardinals.

"Ready to go down there, have some fun," guard Elgton Jenkins said. "Go down there and get that week 1 dub with the Pack to start the season off well."

Players like Jenkin are honored to be part of NFL history.

"I always dreamed of playing in NFL stadiums," he said. "Just to be able to travel to South America and play in a whole different atmosphere I know it’s going to be special."

The matchup will be considered a road game for the Packers. Because visiting teams typically do not receive a ticket allotment for Season Ticket Holders, tickets to the game are not currently available to purchase through the Packers. Ticket packages will be available through On Location, the Official Hospitality Partner of the NFL. If an opportunity becomes available for Packers Season Ticket Holders to purchase tickets through the team, the Packers will share details as they become available.

The rest of the Packers 2024 schedule will be announced later this spring and will feature nine regular-season home games and one preseason home game hosted at Lambeau Field.

Former and current players took part in a Packers Tailgate Tour inside Badger High School in Lake Geneva, just hours after the announcement.

"That’ll be really cool," student JP Doyle said. "It’ll be great football is going to be taken to a new part of the world."

Packers fans looking to fly to Sao Paulo for the game could face high travel expenses. 

"The key word in anything in travel is availability," travel agent Jeanne Reuter said. "Once that availability is down the price goes up."
