The National Football League today announced it will air its first-ever game in South America broadly across Brazil via major sports streaming channel CazéTV, and current broadcast partners RedeTV! and ESPN Brazil.

The Green Bay Packers will play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 6 at 9:15 p.m. local time (8:15 p.m. ET), with all three partners broadcasting live onsite at Corinthians Arena in São Paulo, Brazil.

“We’re thrilled to work with CazéTV, and with current partners RedeTV! and ESPN Brazil to bring to life this historic game in São Paulo,” said Sameer Pabari, managing director, international media at the NFL. “With more than 35 million Brazilian NFL fans, the monumental reach offered via these innovative partnerships will take our game further — allowing both passionate and new NFL fans of all ages to experience this first ever NFL game played in their own country.”

As a new partner with more than 30 million followers across platforms, CazéTV will stream in Brazil Packers-Eagles across YouTube and Amazon Prime Video — both partners of the NFL — as well as Twitch and Samsung TV Plus, reaching a growing market of young football fans in Brazil.

The Week 1 game in São Paulo will also be available for fans in Brazil on RedeTV! (free-to-air) and across long-standing partner ESPN Brazil, continuing to engage NFL audiences across the country as part of their season-long NFL coverage.

A partner since 2022, RedeTV! will ensure fans can access every play of the historic NFL game as the exclusive free-to-air television partner across Brazil. RedeTV! will also provide detailed game analysis, exclusive interviews and special content showcasing a behind-the-scenes look at the game, directly from the field.

Televising NFL games for over 25 years, ESPN Brazil will not only provide extensive coverage of the game in São Paulo across its studio shows, including SportsCenter, but will highlight renowned NFL personalities across multiple events in the city and at Corinthians Arena.

The game will be available via NFL Game Pass on DAZN in both English and Portuguese for paid subscribers outside of the U.S.

Peacock (NBCUniversal) will exclusively stream the inaugural match up in São Paulo across the U.S. in multiple feeds, including Portuguese. Packers-Eagles will also be available on local broadcast stations in Philadelphia, Green Bay and Milwaukee, as well as on mobile devices with NFL+.

CazéTV will begin promoting tune-in to the NFL São Paulo Game during their coverage of the UEFA Euro 2024 Championships and the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. Beyond gameday, CazéTV will run NFL-focused content, including 2024 regular season international games in the U.K. and Germany, as well as a new hosted weekly NFL show on Sundays throughout the season.
