Raiders to Host Packers in Winnipeg for Pre-season Game

The Oakland Raiders, in association with On Ice Entertainment Ltd., will host the Green Bay Packers in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for a preseason Week 3 game on Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019. The contest, scheduled for a 7 p.m. (Central Time) kickoff at IG Field, will mark the first-ever game north of the border for the Silver and Black.

Over the previous six months, the Raiders have worked with On Ice Entertainment to locate and establish a host site for the first NFL game in Canada since the Buffalo Bills played games at Toronto’s Rogers Centre each year from 2008-13. The game will also make the Raiders, who will host the Chicago Bears at Tottenham Stadium in London on Oct. 6, the first-ever NFL team to play games in three different nations in a single season.
