After a protracted false begin it was introduced Wednesday that the Raiders will host the Inexperienced Bay Packers in a Week three exhibition recreation in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Thursday, Aug. 22.
It is going to be the Raiders’ first-ever recreation in Canada. The 7 p.m. contest shall be televised to the Bay Space on KTVU/FOX-2, and to Las Vegas on KVVU/FOX-5.

However a radio journalist in Canada stated the sport would by no means be scheduled as a result of the CFL’s Roughriders, based mostly in Saskatchewan, turned thumbs down on the proposal.
The Raiders-Packers recreation shall be at IG Subject, a 33,000-seat, partially lined stadium that’s the dwelling of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Tickets go on sale June eight and vary from $75 to $340 (Canadian), plus taxes and charges.
