Aaron Rodgers knows how to rock the Canadian tuxedo.

The Green Bay Packers play the Oakland Raiders Thursday night at IG Field in Winnipeg. The turf has been transformed to an NFL size.
I’m told it took less than 16 hours to convert IG Field to NFL specs. pic.twitter.com/G79u8whs04

Stadium capacity is just over 33,000. End zone seats in the lower bowl were reduced as ticket sales were lagging. But there is no certainty fans who paid anywhere between $75-$375 for tickets will see Rodgers take the field in Green Bay colours.
“That is to be determined. I want to wait and see. It’ll be a game-time decision,” Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said. “I got so much confidence in him. I’m not overly concerned either way, whether he plays or not.”
Rodgers might not even touch the field in Canada, but at least he’s starting the trip in style.
