The game will be considered a neutral-site game, meaning that only nine games will be played at Lambeau Field in 2022 (eight regular season and one preseason). The full schedule will be released on May 12.
An “extremely limited number” of tickets to the London game are on sale for Packers Season Ticket Holders to buy via a drawing. Prices and seat locations are still to be determined. Team officials said season ticket holders who are opted in to receive promotional emails will be sent a survey inviting them to enter the ticket drawing.
Tickets to the game will go on sale to the general public in June, though the exact date has not been announced. Those interested in tickets to any of the NFL’s international games should click here.
