  • Will be played at Arena Corinthians, a 47,252-seat soccer venue in São Paulo which has previously hosted competitions in the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics
  • Packers are considered to be one of the most popular NFL teams among fans in Brazil
  • Will be the first ever NFL regular season game played in South America
  • Eagles are the home team, Packers will be away team, meaning no games at Lambeau will be taken away

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 Packers and Eagles will play Friday, September 6th.
