No fans at Lambeau for first two games of the season08/11/2020 • By Anthony Haag
Green Bay Packers CEO/President Mark Murphy announced late last week that no fans will be allowed at Lambeau Field for the first two home games of the season.
As Covid continues to impact communities around Wisconsin and the country, the Packers will continue to evaluate all factors in consultation with local public health officials on what is best for the organization and their fans.
Whether fans will be able to attend after the first two home games will depend on the situation of covid at that time. Currently, the Packers third home game is slated for November 1 vs the Minnesota Vikings.
With no preseason games and no fans at the first two home games, the Packers can make sure they have all of the protocols in place for player, team personnel and fan safety.
“Lambeau Field will not be the same without our fans’ energetic support in the stands. We are hopeful that we will be able to host fans for games later in the season, should conditions allow,” said Packers CEO/President Mark Murphy.
There will be no team run game day activities happening at Lambeau while no fans are in attendance. That means the parking lots and the Lambeau Field Atrium’s attractions – Packers Pro Shop, Packers Hall of Fame and 1919 Kitchen and Tap will all be closed during the first two home games. However, Titletown will be open and businesses in Titletown maybe hosting game day events, so fans will have to inquire with those businesses.
If the team is able to host fans at some point this year, season ticket holders who opted in, will receive ticket purchasing instructions at a later date.
Go Pack Go!
