Isn't Winnipeg like one of the coldest places in Canada? They should play a game in British Columbia, like Vancouver.

It won't be cold in August. 

Lol true. I actually looked up Green Bay's climate and Winnipeg's climate. Both cities (this is just a big coincidence) average a high temperature of 77.7F/25.4C in August. Although, Winnipeg is slightly colder at night by a degree or so. Even San Francisco is cooler during August. Furthermore, during the coldest month. Green Bay's average high and low during January is 24.3F/-4.3C and 9.0F/-12.8C. Winnipeg during January is at 11.7F/-11.3C and -6.5F/-21.4C. Winnipeg being at the center of the continent is just very wild. Green Bay is pretty impressive in it's own right though as it is colder than Toronto, Buffalo, and Hamilton while being only ever so slightly warmer than Montreal.

I wonder how NFL teams would handle December and January games if they were played in Winnipeg? Because in the CFL, the Grey Cup is played in late November and November in Winnipeg is still warmer than a January in Green Bay. Yeah there might be a few canceled games if they played there.

"Green Bay's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders in Canada could be a hard sell for Packers fans.

The cheapest tickets Monday on five secondary market sites sampled were $112, but four of the five sites were listing tickets at $159 and up. 
Tickets went on sale Saturday. The average lowest ticket price for the Winnipeg game was $165.

By comparison, tickets for the Packers' regular-season game in November against the Los Angeles Chargers at  ROKiT Field at Dignity Health Sports Park, which has a seating capacity similar to IG Field, started at $202, and the average of least-expensive seats was $225.

Also for comparison, the least-expensive tickets for the Packers' other preseason games are $10 for Houston at Lambeau Field, $13 for Packers at Baltimore and $6 for Kansas City at Green Bay."

 

The difference is, to go to green bay you have to use real money. Going to the game in Canada only requires monopoly money
