ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders will take on the Green Bay Packers in an exhibition game in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The Raiders announced Wednesday that their home preseason game Aug. 22 will be played at 33,000-seat IG Field in Winnipeg. It will be the Raiders' first game in Canada and the first for any NFL team since the Buffalo Bills played games in Toronto from 2008 to '13. The Raiders also will play a regular season game in London on Oct. 6 against the Chicago Bears.

The Raiders had been looking to move one of their home preseason games after taking until March to sign a lease to remain at the Oakland Coliseum for one more season before a planned move to Las Vegas.
