Packers to give away Lambeau Field seed packets at 100th birthday celebration
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- As the Green Bay Packers’ 100 Seasons draws to a close, fans are invited to join the team for the biggest milestone of all: the team’s 100th birthday on Sunday, August 11.
Fans, community members and visitors can help the Packers celebrate with a free birthday bash in the Lambeau Field Atrium from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on August 11. Free birthday cupcakes will be available for fans throughout the day, as well as public screenings of the first episode of the Legacy documentary, which chronicles the first decade of the team’s history.
The event will also feature a variety of giveaways and prizes, including a special commemorative giveaway to honor 100 Seasons of the Packers: Lambeau Field seed packets containing the same seed that grows into grass at Lambeau Field.
The seed packets allow fans to take home a piece of Lambeau Field and Packers history and help the team sow the seeds for the next 100 Seasons.
Fans can learn more and register their seed packets online at packers.com/100seeds to see where the seed is growing all over the country.
The first 5,000 fans to the Packers birthday celebration will receive a free seed packet, with one in every 50 packets autographed by Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Kenny Clark, Jaire Alexander, Blake Martinez, Head Coach Matt LaFleur, General Manager Brian Gutekunst or Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.
Those who arrive later in the day or who are unable to visit on August 11, can purchase seed packets at the Packers Pro Shop for $5, in-store or online.
Fans can also enter a daily sweepstakes from now through Aug. 11 for a chance to win an Aaron Rodgers-signed Lambeau Field seed packet here.
The Packers Pro Shop will give away free lanyards, and 1919 Kitchen & Tap will have a special birthday dessert and a “Buy a Beer, Receive a Glass” promotion, all while supplies last. The Packers Hall of Fame and Stadium Tours will be open for visitors, with special alumni tours featuring Antonio Freeman at 11 a.m. and noon.
To be eligible to receive one of the first 5,000 seed packets or any 100 Seasons giveaway items or prizes throughout the day, fans must sign up for Packers Pass through the Official Packers App on their mobile device.
Fans without mobile devices are encouraged to sign up for Packers Pass through packers.com/passregister and print out the unique code to bring with them, or visit the Packers Pass kiosk in the Lambeau Field Atrium once training camp begins for assistance.
