2024 NFL International Games Announced

The NFL has unveiled the slate of international games for the upcoming season, bringing exciting matchups to global audiences. Among the highlights is a clash between the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles in São Paulo, Brazil, kicking off the season on September 6th. This marks the NFL’s first regular-season game in South America, expanding its international reach.

No Overseas Trip for Lions

The Lions’ absence from the international schedule is particularly noteworthy.

The decision to keep the Lions stateside is a boon for local fans, who will get to see their team in action without any reductions in home field appearances.

Key International Matchups

Other notable games include a New York Jets versus Minnesota Vikings showdown in London on October 6th and a double feature in the U.K. with the Jacksonville Jaguars facing off against the Chicago Bears and the New England Patriots in consecutive weeks. Additionally, the New York Giants will meet the Carolina Panthers in Munich, Germany, on November 10th, showcasing the NFL’s commitment to growing the sport in Europe.
