At the Allianz Arena, home of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play in the NFL’s first-ever game in Germany on Sunday.
This season, the NFL has already played three games in Europe, all of which were held in London. On November 21, the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals will play in Estadio Azteca in Mexico City to wrap up the league’s 2022 foreign series.
Seattle and Munich are nine hours apart in time, thus the Seahawks held two sessions in less than 24 hours. The team travelled on a charter jet for ten hours after their session in Seattle. The players promptly stopped at their hotel after landing in Munich on Thursday afternoon before returning to the practise area.
After the Seahawks’ practise on Thursday in Germany, coach Pete Carroll said, “It seems like the longest day ever.
Tom Brady purchases new gear.
The most well-known traditional German clothing is arguably Lederhosen. The leather breeches, which are knee-length, are a typical sight at Oktoberfests all around the world. During his first day in Munich, Brady acquired his own pair.
Coaches familiar with titles
Carroll has won the Super Bowl and two national championships in college football. Julian Nagelsmann, the manager of Bayern Munich, is his opponent and is just 35 years old, but he has already won the DFL Supercup and the Bundesliga.
Rep your home team
This week, players from both sides wore Bayern jerseys. Brady even received a specially made No. 12 jersey.
The NFL reported that there were 800,000 people in line for tickets to the game at the 70,000-seat stadium.
German Bucs fan Markus Jantke, 45, experienced some trouble in order to obtain his tickets.
He was heading to Munich when tickets went on sale to the general public in July, so he stopped at a rest area to get in line.
Jantke told ESPN’s Jenna Laine, “After waiting for thirty minutes and being No. 400,000 on the waiting list, I gave up and went on to Munich. “I received a phone call from a buddy twenty minutes later. I was asked if I wanted to accompany her to the game. Another man contacted me ten minutes later and said, “Markus, I got four tickets!””
