Eagles to play in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Friday of Week 1

The Philadelphia Eagles will open the 2024 season where no NFL team has gone before: Brazil.

The Eagles will be the designated home team for the league’s first-ever game in South America on the Friday of Week 1, commissioner Roger Goodell announced Monday.

Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo will host one of the league’s five international games in 2024. Three will be played in London and one will be in Munich, Germany.

Sao Paulo was chosen over Madrid as the league’s next new market, though an NFL official said in December that Madrid could host a game as early as 2025.

The Eagles’ opponent was not revealed. The game will be the second fixture of the new season, one day after the traditional Thursday night kickoff that usually features the Super Bowl champions.

The NFL has played only eight games on Friday since 1978, according to a Miami Herald story published before the Dolphins visited the New York Jets last November for the league’s first-ever Black Friday game.

There are plans for a Black Friday game streamed on Amazon Prime every year going forward.
