The Philadelphia Eagles could be banned from wearing their traditional green home jerseys when they head to Brazil to face the Green Bay Packers later this year.

On the opening weekend of the 2024 season, the NFL will stage its first ever regular-season game in South America when Philadelphia takes on Green Bay at Sao Paulo's Corinthians Arena - home to Brazilian soccer team Corinthians.

Yet over four months out from the historic event on September 6, the Eagles - who will be the designated home team on the night - already have a dilemma to overcome because of the color of their jersey.

Because of their fierce rivalry with fellow Brazilian soccer club Palmeiras, Corinthians have an informal ban on the color green - which is worn by their arch-nemesis.

Players and fans are forbidden from wearing green, with former Corinthians striker Jo even fined by the club in 2021 for donning green soccer cleats.
