Football fans will have a chance to purchase tickets for the Green Bay Packers game in London this week and again in July.
Green Bay Packers season ticket holders who opted-in for a drawing to be allowed to buy tickets will get their chance at 10 a.m. today. Those fans received a link on Monday to a Ticketmaster site where they can purchase tickets.
A season ticket package for two games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London — the Oct. 9 game between the Packers and New York Giants and the Oct. 2 game between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints — goes on sale at 4 a.m. Central Daylight Time Thursday. Season ticket prices range from $153 (£128) to $350 (£292).
Sale of the remaining single-game tickes will begin at 4 a.m. on July 26. Single-game tickets range from $77 (£64) to $174 (£146).

In all cases, tickets are in limited supply. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has a capacity of 62,850, compared to 81,441 at Lambeau Field.
Premium packages, which were offered last week, sold out, according to NFL United Kingdom's website.
"Tickets are going to be a scarce commodity on this game," said Dennis Garrity of Event USA in Ashwaubenon.
Each team gets an allotment of tickets, and the Packers, for their part, will not allow tickets to be resold on the secondary market.
Event USA began selling travel/game packages soon after the schedule was announced.
"Sales are very robust. This is one of the more popular road offerings we have had in the last five years or more," Garrity said at the time. "We don't anticipate we will have any considerable amount of tickets for sale beyond what we need for our own customer packages."
The Packers have a large fanbase in the United Kingdom and Europe, and discussion about getting tickets, and some frustration over the limited number, has been frequent on social media.
As would be expected because of the tight supply, prices on secondary market websites are high. StubHub listed tickets between $308 (£258) and $2,147 (£1,794). At Vivid Seats, prices ranged from $508 to $8,705.
The game will be played at 8:30 a.m. CDT on Sunday, Oct. 9. It will be the first regular-season international game for the Packers. They are the last of the NFL's 32 teams to play a regular-season international game.
