Good job Murphy, getting a road international game. No one wanted to give those to the Packers for London and so we were last going there by a couple of years.

Now all we need is a Samba rock version of "Bang on the Drum All Day" for when GB scores a TD and we'll really be cookin'.

The game will take place at Corinthians Arena, the home of Brazilian soccer team Corinthians. The venue was used at the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Corinthians have an informal ban on the color green, worn by their bitter rivals Palmeiras, around the club. The Packers and Eagles both wear green, with the Eagles set to wear the color as the home team. In 2021, Corinthians fined their striker Jo for wearing green boots. Jo later said the boots were actually “turquoise blue”.

“I would never use green boots because of my history with Corinthians, a club I have loved since I was little,” he said. “I would never disrespect Corinthians, much less the fans. I have always honored this shirt and I always will honor it.”

There is a precedent for teams wearing jerseys with touches of green at the stadium. Brazil and Nigeria, who incorporate green in their jerseys, played at the venue during the 2016 Olympics. Nigeria played in their white away shirt with green numbers, and Brazil played in their famous yellow jerseys with green trim.



Yeah somethings gonna have to give here lol

There is no reason why a Packer fan would not want this game played in Brazil.

Even with all that said, I am still not a fan of playing in Brazil. Other than "Friendlies" you don't see Arsenal playing Man U in LA or Real Madrid and Barcelona in NYC. They don't need to do it in order to attract US fans. International football developed an audience in the US by putting out a product that people want to watch. Not by flying here and putting on a show.

The trip takes more than 10 hours from Chicago to Sap Paulo. Longer from Milwaukee. From what I understand they won't be able to charter a large enough jet to leave from GB. That is over 20 hours in the air plus drive time back to GB. Nearly a day. It's not good for the players even if they have 100 first class type seats.

If your team has to play an international game. I think this is the best situation possible. Open on Friday so you get extra couple days of rest? I mean, yeehaw!! lol

Too bad it's on that stupid Peacock crap.

The Eagles lost the competitive advantage of a home game against us. Playing on the first Friday, the Packers can put plenty of lead time into getting there. The alternative would have been to play the Eagles in Philadelphia, and if you think that is preferable to this, then go ahead and think it. I do not. I'ts an opinion. Not putting anyone down. WBAY interviewed Marcus Rovere from Brazil. He runs a Packers social media site there. He has almost 30,000 followers. I like our chances of being the home team vs. the paper home team in this game.

And my apologies if I misinterpreted your comment. I took it as if you don't like Packers in Brazil, then you're not a Packers fan.

Martha Careful (17-May) : I bet some of us have had 6+ mRNA jabs, a UKR flag on our walls, and still think Fauci has a thread of integrity
Zero2Cool (16-May) : From what I've read, it's all Jets , not us.
CanPackFan (16-May) : Will there ever be a time when Rodgers' whacko views will not reflect on GB? He is the past, thank god.
Zero2Cool (16-May) : Jan 4th gonna be rough with that start time lol

Zero2Cool (13-May) : Sources spoke of many, many times last summer where Hackett called a play, then Rodgers changed it completely at the line
Martha Careful (10-May) : 1. this is true of all our linemen. 2. His run block is fine. 3. If all OL played like he has, we would win SB.
beast (10-May) : Meyers pass blocking is really good, his run blocking is really not.
