When NFL London game between the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants was about to happen a fan named Frank appeared. According to the reports, he was astoundingly similar to Aaron Rodgers Doppelgänger. The fans started questioning on why he is among the crowd and not in the field playing with other players.
What exactly happened?
The National Football League (NFL) is currently being held in London for week 5 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The game was held between the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants.
The said game was held on October 9, Sunday. During the match, one particular guy caused quite a stir among crowds. This man was supposedly a huge fan of Aaron Rodgers Doppelgänger and came there to enjoy the match. Apparently, he was all dressed in Aaron Rodgers jersey and a hat.
However, his appearance was strikingly similar to his idol. The fans started shouting and cheering and at last questioning him as to why he is not on the field playing and sitting here. At last, it got so out of hand that the TV graphic had to show “not Aaron Rodgers” over live footage of the fan.
Who is “Frank” ?
The said fan’s name is “Frank” who didn’t wish to reveal his surname for privacy reasons. He is a software engineer from Germany. Also, he revealed that he traveled from Munich to Chicago to enjoy the game.
“Someone beside me said ‘Hey man your on Twitter and TV. The next day when I saw millions of views on Twitter, it was unreal”, he told the Wisconsin radio station NBC Chicago.
Meanwhile, his father was a huge admirer of Packers and desired to attend the Green Bay game. “It was on his bucket list to go to the LAMBEAU field, and last year me and my sister decided to bring him there,” the fan explained.
Frank said, “After the game, like I tried to gather a bit of attention, to see if Aaron Rodgers would come and maybe sign my shirt, my jersey. Then nothing happened”.
“I can tell myself that one day in my life I made over a million people laugh. That’s the best satisfaction I have from the whole story”, he said expressing his happiness.
When he came to know about how everyone was mistaking a fan for him, the quarterback snatched this chance to joke about the whole situation. On The Pat McAfee Show

It has happened before
This is not the first time that the supposed “twin” made an appearance in a Green Bay game. In 2021, Frank was seen when an NFC North game between the Packers and Bears at Lambeau Field was happening.
Cris Collinsworth, the host of “Sunday Night Football” podcast said in disbelief, “Don’t tell me there’s two of them”. However, Al Michaels simply replied, “You realize what this is? This is the dictionary and you’re looking at the definition of doppelgänger”.
