The Packers will play a game for the 2022-2023 season in London. The declaration was made Monday morning by the team and the NFL.
The Green Bay Packers will play a regular-season game this year at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The opponent and date are still to be finalized.
Up to four of the teams that qualified for a 9th normal season home game are assigned to play a nonpartisan site global game every year.
“The Packers are keen to make our international introduction through the 2022 season,” Packers CEO/President Mark Murphy stated in a statement. “Our followers in the UK and someplace in Europe have been eagerly forestalling a chance to see the Green Bay Packers play in their ground and that need turns into a reality this season.”
Tottenham Hotspur played at Lambeau Field before building their new arena in 2016.
“It will be an honor to introduce the NFL, as well as The Green Bay Packers and the area of Wisconsin, across the world,” said Murphy. “This will be an unusual opportunity to current The Packers and our county to a worldwide audience and empower followers in the United Kingdom to visit us face to face at Lambeau Field and Northeastern Wisconsin.”
With the matchup set for London, the Packers will turn into the 32nd NFL team to play in the city beginning around 2007.
Beforehand, the Packers have played globally during the preseason on three events: in Toronto in 1997, Tokyo in 1998 and Winnipeg in 2019.
Since the game won't be played at Lambeau Field, it will be viewed as a neutral-site international game.
The typical apportioning of regular-season games will be assigned for Green (six) and Gold (two) bundle ticket holders.
Furthermore, the worldwide game designation will leave Green Bay with one preseason game, which will be assigned to the Green bundle for the 2022 season.
In general, nine games will be played at Lambeau Field in 2022.
Ticket invoices for Packers Season Ticket Holders, which will be sent over a long period of time, will reflect this worldwide game situation.
The NFL likewise declared the Arizona Cardinals, Jacksonville Jaguars, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play worldwide games during the 2022 season.
Details of the dates, matchups and opening times will be affirmed as a part of the full timetable declaration later this year.
Ticketing, travel package data and fan engagement activities are as yet being finished and will be reported at a later date.
The Team Buccaneers will play in the NFL's opening regular-season game in Munich, Germany.
The Cardinals will play in Mexico City, where they contributed to the first-ever regular-season game external the United States in 2005. The Saints will play in the UK for the third time, having won two past events.
The Jaguars recently declared they will play a home game at Wembley Stadium in 2022. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was set up in 2019 and grasps 62,850 fanbases.
Here's is the Event Introduction that We Know so Far
- The Packers are assigned as the “home” team for the London game.
- The Packers will play nine rivals on the “home” plan in 2022: Giants, Jets, Bears, Lions, Patriots, Rams, Vikings, Cowboys, Titans.
So, Who will The Packers Play Over the Pond?
Divisional games are so enormously significant that they are seldom utilized in the NFL International Series, so it's impossible that the Packers would play the Bears, Lions or Vikings in London. It's inordinately difficult to imagine the team sacrificing a home division game. How about we preclude them immediately.
The Cowboys, Patriots and Rams will be generally colossal draws. The Cowboys will bring previous Packer’s mentor Mike McCarthy to Lambeau Field interestingly. The Patriots made the playoffs last season and are important all the time. The Rams just won the Super Bowl. The Packers need those games in Green Bay. Losing one to London would be a major blow, so we should preclude these three as well.
That brings us to the Recent Matches between the Giants, Jets and Titans.
The Titans were the No. 1 seed in the AFC last season and rarely does the NFL pit two-season finisher teams against one another in London. Don't completely preclude the Titans as the rivals, yet they may be the most unrealistic of the last three.
The NFL likes having the NFC versus AFC dynamic in play. However, the Jets just played in London last season. Could they send a team (that isn't the Jaguars) around there two times in two seasons? Likely not.
The Giants haven't played abroad starting around 2016.
By the process of elimination, we get Packers versus Giant in London in 2022.
Who couldn't like this matchup? Two storied and favourite franchises playing in the UK.
The Packers wouldn't love surrendering a home game against the Giants and the team's gigantic fanbase, however, New York is likewise going through a coaching change and hasn't completed over .500 in a season starting around 2016. In last season's Past Honors, the Giants won four matches. Teams can change radically in one year. However, The Packers presumably wouldn't despise playing an average team like the Giants in London.
