Week 1: Green Bay Packers vs. Philadelphia Eagles, Sept. 6, at Sao Paulo, Brazil, Peacock

The league’s first match in Brazil features two knockout teams. It will be the first Friday opener in the NFL for teams since 1970.

“We look forward to being a part of this historic matchup with the Eagles in Sao Paulo,” said Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy. Through the group’s website. “We’re excited to play in front of our loyal fans in Brazil and help the NFL and the Packers grow internationally. We had a great experience playing internationally for the first time a few years ago, and we’re proud to be a part of the league’s continued international growth.”

The Packers have played several times outside of the United States, though most of them have been preseason games. They played two preseason games in Canada (1997 in Toronto, 2019 in Winnipeg) and played one regular-season game overseas in 1998 in Tokyo: 2022 in London against the New York Giants, a 27-22 win.

There will be four other international games in the 2024 NFL season, though we only know the home teams for those contests. The Carolina Panthers will be the home team for the game in Munich. The Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears will both be home teams for games in London, as will the Jacksonville Jaguars, who will play their 12th London game since 2013.
