When is the NFL Brazil Game 2024 happening?

The game will take place on Friday 6th September 2024.

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

Where is the NFL Brazil game happening?

The match will take place at the Corinthians Arena, the home of the top-tier Brazilian soccer team, who play in the Brazilian Championship A Series.

The arena can hold 47,525 spectators - and is likely to be packed to the rafters with NFL fans as it’s such a big sport in Brazil.

“With over 35 million passionate fans in Brazil, the Friday night 2024 regular season opener in São Paulo will bring an incredible energy – marking a historic moment for our sport internationally,” Gerriet Meier, Managing Director and Head of NFL International said.

The arena is multi-faceted and has also held several matches at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, as well as football at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Which teams will take part in the NFL Brazil 2024 game?

The teams that will go head-to-head in the game are the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Mayor of São Paulo, Ricardo Nunes, said, "The matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles is an extremely exciting moment for the city of São Paulo.

“These two franchises will certainly play a historic game, bringing great global visibility to our city and assisting our efforts to generate jobs and economic impact."

What’s the history between the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles?

This will be the 48th time that the Packers and the Eagles have played - with the Packers taking the lead 29-18, according to Pro Football Reference.

The last time the two teams met was in 2022 when the Eagles were led to a 40-33 victory by quarterback Jalen Hurts. So the Packers will be sure to want to trounce the Eagles this time round.

Which are the players to watch out for in the NFL Brazil 2024?

At the end of the 2023 season, the teams had differing fortunes. The Eagles lost six of the last seven games they played, but the Packers won four out of five of their games.

Players to keep an eye on include the Eagles’ super-speedy running back Saquon Barkley, who has been newly brought over from the New York Giants.

Meanwhile, ascending edge rusher Bryce Huff, who has just signed a three-year contract with the Eagles, will lend strength to the defence.

In terms of the Packers, Jordan Love will want to continue on from his excellent last season and look to cement himself in the team as an elite quarterback.

Old hand Kenny Clark is also an important part of the squad as a defensive tackle, bringing consistency and experience to the team that will be much-needed in Brazil.
