Packers to play Raiders in Winnipeg on August 22

The final piece of the Packers' 2019 schedule was set when it was announced Wednesday that Green Bay would play the Raiders in Winnipeg at IG Field on Thursday, August 22nd.

It'll be the first Packers contest played in Canada since 1997, a preseason game against Buffalo.

The neutral-site game will replace one of the Packers' road games on the four-game preseason schedule, and ensures that the team is playing on Thursdays through the first week of the regular season.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Green Bay will be the road team at the 33,000-seat facility.
