BREAKING: The Eagles Will Play Packers In Brazil On Friday Night Of NFL’s Opening Week Of 2024 Season

The Eagles opponent for the for the first NFL game in South America is set.

The National Football League announced that it’ll be the Green Bay Packers who will take on the Philadelphia Eagles for the season-opening game in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

The game, which will be streamed exclusively on Peacock, will be the first Friday night season opener for the NFL in 54 years. The then-St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Rams opened that season on Sept. 18, 1970.

The Brazil game is the first of five regular season games being played internationally this year. 


Packers president Mark Murphy said on Tuesday the team would gladly go if chosen.

“I think we’re either the first or second-most popular team in Brazil,” Murphy said Tuesday morning. “Apparently they really like green and gold.”

The game will be played at Neo Quimica Arena, in São Paulo. The stadium belongs to Brazilian soccer club Corinthians, and it was one of the hosts of the 2014 Fifa World Cup.

The NFL has made international games in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Mexico. Canada has received several games in its history, but hasn’t hosted a regular season game since 2013. Japan, Sweden, Ireland, and Australia have already hosted preseason games as well. Since the announcement of Brazil’s game, the NFL has also decided it will play a game in Madrid, Spain, in 2025.
