Green Bay Packers fans interested in the team’s upcoming game in London can finally circle a specific date when they can start making plans for the fall.

The NFL is taking its time in announcing the schedule for the 2022 season, and on Thursday the league revealed the date of that schedule reveal. It’s not for another two-plus weeks, but those looking to make international plans will have a bit of a benefit — the league will announce the details of its International Series games a week earlier.

So get those credit cards handy about two weeks from now, when we’ll know when and who the team will play across the pond.

Of course, between now and then is the league’s premier offseason event, as the 2022 NFL Draft finally begins next Thursday. One week from now, we’ll know what the Packers will have done with the 22nd and 28th overall picks. Receiver? Defensive lineman? Edge rusher? Those are all still viable options for those picks, though that is hardly an exhaustive list. Keep it here at APC for continuing draft coverage and make sure to tune in on Thursday next week for our live draft show.
