Great news for Canadian NFL fans! The NFL is in talks to bring a pre-season game to Canada, and Winnipeg’s Investors Group Field could be the place!
The exhibition game will be between the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers on Friday, August 23, 2019. Originally, Mosaic Stadium in Regina was the planned destination. However, the Saskatchewan Roughriders are scheduled to play a home game on Saturday, August 24 and it would take too much time to convert an NFL field back to CFL standards before kick off.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers play road games on August 23 and September 1 which would give Investors Group Field enough time to convert to an NFL standard field and back to CFL.
