With just a few months until the NFL season begins, every team has their complete schedule for the regular season.
As for the preseason, the Hall of Fame Game is just over two months away, marking the beginning of official NFL competition for the year.
The NFL is coming to Winnipeg. The Winnipeg Football Club will host the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers in an NFL Week 3 pre-season game set for the third week of August, per sources. #wfp https://t.co/0lxhi1MrTk— Jeff Hamilton (@jeffkhamilton) May 24, 2019
The game will be hosted by the Winnipeg Football Club and came after a long attempt to land an NFL exhibition game by the WFC. Originally Canada was supposed to host a preseason game in Regina at Mosaic Stadium, but those plans fell through.
The fallout happened because of what would have been a very short turnaround for the local CFL team, the Roughriders, which then led to interest from Edmonton to host a preseason game. As for Winnipeg, they are scheduled to be on the road the week of the NFL game, the only potential issue would be a Valour FC game, the city's new Canadian Premier League soccer team.
Thankfully, the sides appear to have worked out a date to allow Winnipeg football fans to watch the highest level of the game, with NFL action headed to the area later this summer.
