Packers allowing some season ticket holders to attend divisional playoff game
GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers’ divisional playoff game at Lambeau Field will include attendance by season ticket holders, for the first time in months amid the coronavirus pandemic.
NBC26 in Green Bay reported that the Packers announced Thursday that ticket holders who opted last summer to purchase tickets will receive information via email. Tickets go on sale Jan. 12 on Ticketmaster.
The date and time for next weekend’s game have yet to be announced.
“Our players have enjoyed the energy provided by the limited fans we’ve had over the past four games. We’re looking forward to welcoming our season ticket holders to add to that atmosphere in the playoffs,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy in a statement. “We’ve seen our COVID-19 protocols in action and are confident we can safely add additional fans.”
About 6,000 tickets will be available for purchase by season ticket holders who opted in. Prices will range from $127 to $177, based on location, plus a Ticketmaster service fee.
According to the team, seats will be arranged in socially distanced pods of two, four and six tickets throughout the stadium.
Others will be in attendance, including invited frontline healthcare workers and first responders, as well as a league-mandated allotment for the visiting team.
Tickets will not be able to be resold or transferred and all tickets will be mobile.
