NFL set for 2024 regular-season game in Brazil

The NFL is expanding its international series of games. In 2024, the league will play a game in Brazil for the first time, it was announced on Wednesday.

Sao Paulo was selected over Madrid, Spain.

Per NFL.com:

The 2024 Brazil game is likely just the start of the NFL’s plans to play in more international cities. Owners, on Wednesday, passed a resolution that compels each team to play an international game every four years — meaning the NFL could schedule as many as eight international games starting with the 2025 season. The Jacksonville Jaguars have a separate agreement to play a game at London’s Wembley Stadium, which is not counted as part of the league’s total. In 2024, the Jaguars will play at Wembley, there will be two games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and a game in Munich, Germany, in addition to São Paulo.

On the overall international front, the NFL will increase said games from four to up to eight games a season beginning in 2025.
