NFL 2024 Schedule: 5 International Games in 3 Different Countries

15th May 2024 | Category: Sports

The NFL is in the offseason, but the break is not stopping fans from questioning what games will be the season opener in September. And even though training camp is yet to begin in August, both the teams and the fans are eager to see when their favorites are going to be on the program.

While we eagerly await the highly-anticipated NFL schedule for the 2024/2025 season, the NFL did announce their international games. And luckily for us, there is more than a few to look forward to.

International Games in 2024

With the Chiefs announcing their plan for a three-peat, both the organization and other teams are eager to create a challenge for the recently crowned champions. Rumors of the schedule flooded social media, and with some of them already confirmed, it’s clear that this season is not going to be easy for the Chiefs. But hey, they are not going to make it easy for the challengers, right?

Still, there had been a rumour that the Kansas City team is going to meet up with its opponent in Week 1 abroad. However, with the official announcement of the 2024 International Games schedule, that rumor was quickly dispelled.

Here is the full schedule for the 2024/2025 International Games in the NFL.

Green Bay Packers vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The first international game announced for the upcoming season is the Packers vs. Eagles. The two teams are set to meet up in São Paulo, Brazil! This is not just the first time either team is setting foot in South America, but actually the first-ever South America NFL game for the league. And what a way to kick it off!

This historically important match is taking place in the Corinthians Arena is São Paulo in Week 1. The exact date is September 6, 2024 (8:15 PM ET). Here’s another fun fact for the match: it’s the first Friday night game for the opening weekend in 50 years. A landmark event, for sure. Grab the tickets HERE.

New York Jets vs. Minnesota Vikings

A month after NFL enthusiasts set their eyes on South America, we pack our bags again.  The Jets headed by Aaron Rodgers are jetting off to London, UK, for a match with J.J. McCarthy-led Vikings.

It’s a big game for both teams. Rodgers is returning to the league after a season-ending injury in 2023. His injury undoubtedly affected the team, which suffered a lot while Rodgers was forced to watch from the sidelines. Could the 4-time NFL MVP turn this season into a better one?

The Vikings will certainly give their best. The match is set to take place in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, UK, in Week 5. The exact date is October 9, 2024 (9:30 AM ET). You can get tickets for the event HERE.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Chicago Bulls

A week after the Jets and Vikings face off against each other, the Jaguars and Bulls are up. Same place, same stadium – the Tottenham Hotspur New Stadium. While Jaguars are well-versed in travelling overseas – they’ve been to London 12 times – the Bears are travelling for the third time. Moreover, the Bears have not had an international game since 2019. Does that complicate things? We’ll see on October 13, 2024 at 9:30 AM (ET).

The expectations are high for Jaguars’ Trevor Lawrence. The team expects to have a strong comeback and hopefully regain the title of AFC South champions again. Caleb Williams leading the Bears might have a thing or two against that. Get the front-row seats for the spectacle HERE.

New England Patriots vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

A week after they meet the Bulls in London, the Jaguars are packing their bags and moving to another stadium. Thankfully, they are not going far – they’re staying in the same city, in fact! This time, they are facing off with New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium on October 20. The time is the same as always, 9:30 AM (ET).

But what does this Week 7 matchup look like? Well, it’s clear that lots of things will depend on the result from the week before that. The Jaguars are facing a back-to-back international game appearance,                 which might stump some teams, but there’s no doubt the Jags are built to withstand it. But the Patriots are eager to prove themselves, especially with the departure of Bill Belichick during the offseason. Could Patriots and Drake Maye defeat the Jaguars? Check it out HERE.

New York Giants vs. Carolina Panthers

In the last season, we got to see two fantastic games in Germany. Both were played in Frankfurt, but this year, the NFL decided to give other German cities a chance. As a result, the fifth and final International Game for 2024 is taking place in Munich. This marks the second time the NFL is hosting a game in the city, returning after 2 years.

The teams are New York Giants and the Carolina Panthers. The Giants are at a bit of an advantage as their current record stands at 3-0 in international games. Sure, the 2023 season was abysmal for both teams, but the 2022 season proved to be quite fruitful for the Giants. And Bryce Young, the young Panther, is testing the international waters for the first time ever. Visit the Week 10 game on November 10 by purchasing a ticket HERE.
