Next Sunday, November 13th, German football fans have a very special treat on the program. In the Allianz Arena in Munich, the Seattle Seahawks will meet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under superstar and record champion Tom Brady (45). For the first regular NFL season game on German soil, both teams have to put up with a long journey. The Seahawks will land in Munich on Thursday after an eleven-hour flight. Brady and his men are then scheduled to arrive in the Bavarian capital on Friday. Their flight will last ten hours and thirty minutes, as reported by "Marca".
Rapper Cro (32) steps onto the Allianz Arena lawn in front of the teams and performs a ten-minute medley of his greatest hits. NFL Germany announced this on Tuesday. Cro is said to have prepared for the pregame show for around three months. The performance will begin at 3 p.m., around half an hour before the NFL game kicks off. On the other hand, there is no classic musical halftime show like the legendary Super Bowl. Instead, the German women's national team will play flag football and play a game to promote the non-contact version of the sport.
The NFL game between two-time Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers and one-time champion Seattle Seahawks then kicks off at 3:30 p.m. German time. It's been sold out for a long time, but will be broadcast live on ProSieben and DAZN. The NFL will return to Germany in the years to come. Season games are to take place in Frankfurt in 2023 and 2025. Another game in Munich is planned for 2024.
