How much do tickets cost for Giants vs Packers in London?
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will host the Sunday NFL week 5 clash as the Packers face NY Giants in North London.
Both Green Bay Packers and Sunday’s opponents come into Sunday’s ‘London game’ in decent form with both teams 3-1 for the 2022-23 season as the English capital hosts the second of three NFL games this season.
After the Minnesota Vikings beat New Orleans at the same venue last Sunday, the North London stadium and home to Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur opens its doors to another NFL contest.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is confident the time zone change for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants in London will not impact his side’s performance.
Packers head coach Matt LeFleur opted to do the bulk of their preparation in Green Bay before flying to London on Thursday evening, with a Friday morning local time arrival.
LaFleur said the game “feels like a Thursday night game” for the coaches in terms of preparation turnaround, but Rodgers laughed that off from a player’s perspective.
Rodgers had no complaints about the decision to travel late in the week, although he admitted he would have liked to take in London for a cultural experience.
“We’re all excited,” he said. “I think the reason I said I wanted to go over early was just to experience a little bit of that culture, to be able to get out and see some sights and interact with fans, go to a pub and have a Guinness or whatever the local brew is.
The four-time NFL MVP said he had his own techniques to deal with jetlag, preferring to keep them secret for a “competitive advantage”, but offered some insight into the coming days.
“You knock yourself out,” he laughed. “You’ve got to stay up as late as you can Friday and then it starts to fall into place. But there’s no excuses, we’ll be trying to sleep on the way out.
“We’ll go through the process on Friday, trying to sleep Friday night, hoping for a bit more rest Saturday, have a normal day, get some sleep but both teams are dealing with the same issues.”
Rodgers has made 89 of 129 attempts with a completion rate of 69 per cent for six touchdowns with three interceptions across four games this season.
