The Informal Ban

Contrary to rumors of a gang-related ban, the real reason lies with the Brazilian football club SC Corinthians. Their home stadium, Corinthians Arena, will host the historic matchup. The club has an “informal ban” on wearing green due to a fierce rivalry with the green-clad Brazilian club Palmeiras. This ban extends to visiting teams as well.

Corinthians takes their green rivalry seriously. In 2021, they fined one of their players for wearing green cleats during a match. While international teams have occasionally worn green numbers or jersey trim at the stadium, the ban remains intact. The NFL’s decision to advise Packers and Eagles players to avoid green aligns with this tradition.

Armored Vehicles and Precautions

Packers running back Josh Jacobs revealed that the league’s warnings have left players feeling uneasy. “They probably gonna have, like, armored vehicles following us,” Jacobs said. The concern stems from safety precautions related to the gang presence in certain areas of Brazil. The NFL wants to ensure player security during their stay.
