The Oakland Raiders announced on Wednesday that their August 22 preseason game against the Green Bay Packers will be played in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The game will be played at IG Field, home of the Canadian Football League’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The game is currently scheduled to kick-off at 5pm PST.

“We are thrilled to welcome both the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers to IG Field this summer,” Blue Bombers president and CEO Wade Miller said in a statement. “We look forward to NFL and CFL fans alike joining us this August for this special sporting event at IG Field as we showcase our great stadium and the city’s passion for the sport of football.”

With the Raiders playing the Chicago Bears in Week 5 of the regular season at Tottenham Hot Spur Stadium in London, they’ll become the first team in NFL history to play in three different countries in one season.
