The Giants organization has a long-standing history with international ties.

They will visit Europe for the second time in three seasons. In 2022, they defeated the Green Bay Packers to improve their record to 3-0 in regular-season games in Europe, all in London.

The game against Carolina will be the Giants’ second in Germany, their first in 30 years, their first in Munich, and their first in the regular season.

On Aug. 13, 1994, they defeated the San Diego Chargers in a preseason game in Berlin, 28-20. The game was played in Berlin Olympic Stadium, the primary outdoor venue for the 1936 Olympic Games.

The Giants will play their fourth regular-season game in Europe after winning three games in three different stadiums in London.

On Oct. 28, 2007, the Giants won the first NFL regular-season game played outside of North America when they defeated the Miami Dolphins, 13-10, before a crowd of 81,176 in Wembley Stadium.

The Giants next played in London on Oct. 23, 2016, when earned a 17-10 victory against the Los Angeles Rams in the first NFL game played in Twickenham Stadium.

Their most recent visit to England was on Oct. 9, 2022. Their defense did not allow a point in the second half as the Giants held off the Green Bay Packers, 27-22, in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Giants and Panthers will play the fourth NFL regular-season game in Germany, and second in Munich, all in the last three years.

On Nov. 13, 2022, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 21-16, in front of 69,811 fans in Allianz Arena, the only previous NFL game played in Munich.

Last year, the NFL played games on consecutive Sundays in Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt. Kansas City defeated Miami, 21-14, on Nov. 5, and Indianapolis topped New England, 10-6, on Nov. 12. Each game drew slightly more than 50,000 fans.

The Giants and Minnesota Vikings are the only NFL franchises with 3-0 records in Europe. The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are also unbeaten in three international games, but they each won one in Mexico City. The New England Patriots are 3-1 outside the United States.
