NFL Makes Historic Move: Regular Season Opener in Brazil for 2024 Season!

The NFL has announced that the upcoming 2024 season will feature its first-ever regular-season game in Brazil. The much-anticipated match will take place on a Friday, just a day after the Kansas City Chiefs who won the Super Bowl kick off the season.

Corinth Stadium, located in the heart of São Paulo, provides a spectacular backdrop for the NFL's debut in Brazil. Renowned for its vibrant atmosphere and passionate sports culture, São Paulo is the perfect host city for this historic event. The decision to stage the game on a Friday is expected to amplify the weekend excitement, allowing fans to kick off their football-filled weekend in style. It will be the first time since the 70’s that the NFL will have a regular season game on a Friday in the season opener. 



The NFL's expansion into international markets has been a strategic move to enhance its global footprint and engage with fans across borders. Brazil, with its growing enthusiasm for American football, offers a promising market for the league. By choosing São Paulo and the Corinthians Stadium, the NFL aims to immerse fans in a unique cultural experience while showcasing the sport's universal appeal.
