Packers to welcome nearly 6K season ticket holders to playoff game
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Green Bay Packers' Divisional Playoff game at Lambeau Field will include attendance by season ticket holders in addition to invited frontline health care workers and first responders.
The organization made the announcement in a press release Thursday, Jan. 7.
The release says approximately 6,000 tickets will be available for purchase by season ticket holders who opted in the summer for a chance to purchase tickets. Those individuals will receive information this week via email. Due to the significantly reduced capacity, the team cannot guarantee all opted-in season ticket holders will be able to purchase tickets.
Tickets will go on sale online through Ticketmaster only Tuesday, Jan. 12, after the date and time of the Divisional matchup is announced by the NFL. No tickets will be on sale through the Packers' ticket office.
Seats will be arranged in socially distanced pods of two, four and six tickets throughout the stadium. The release says prices will range from $127 to $177 based on location.
Tickets will not be able to be resold or transferred and all tickets will be mobile.
The plan for an increased number of attendees "builds upon the successful COVID-19 protocols the team used for its final four regular-season home games," according to the release. It says it is expected that season ticket holders attend the game with members of their household.
“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. “We’ve seen our COVID-19 protocols in action and are confident we can safely add additional fans.”
