GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers will host Packers Everywhere pep rallies in three cities this season, including three rallies in London, where fans are starved for contact with their favorite team.

The Packers are scheduled to play the New York Giants at 8:30 a.m. Central Time on Oct. 9 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. It will be the Packers first international regular-season game.

Green Bay has a large following in Europe, especially in the United Kingdom, which includes several Packers fan groups, UK & Irish Packers Group and Green Bay Packers: UK Packer Backers among them.
