Packers Allowing Some Fans At Lambeau For Divisional Playoff Game
The Green Bay Packers have the bye this week in the NFL playoffs. When they do play in the NFC Divisional Playoff game next weekend, they'll be home at Lambeau Field because of their #1 seed in the playoffs. The Green Bay Packers organization has decided to let approximately 6,000 fans in the stadium for the game, but not just anyone can purchase a ticket.
Earlier this summer they gave the option to season ticket holders to opt in for potential in person games. Now those who have opted in can purchase tickets for the NFL Divisional Game that takes place either January 16 or 17. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday online through ticketmaster. Prices will range from $127 to $177. Those who opted in will receive further instructions via e-mail this week. All the tickets will be mobile and will not be allowed to be transferred or resold.
In addition to fans who are purchasing tickets, other guests will be welcomed by the team that include frontline health workers and first responders. Seating placement will be in pods for the game, socially distancing groups from others.
There are other rules in place such as guests need to wear face masks. They are required to stay in their pod unless they are visiting the restroom or concession area. No tailgating will be allowed either. The Green Bay Packers organization will be doing enhanced cleaning measures as well. Indoor club seating and spaces will not be utilized.
We will update you on the schedule and who and when the Packers will play. Remember this weekend that you can catch triple-header NFL wild card action on 106.5FM & 560AM in the Northland on both Saturday and Sunday on the Northland Fan.
