Some great news was shared by the Green Bay Packers last week. After a season of playing in front of no or limited fans, the Packers announced they will host fans at full capacity this season, as well as at the Annual Shareholders meeting and Family Night.
The Packers have stated that fan who are vaccinated no longer need to wear masks, but they are asking that fans who are unvaccinated to wear masks following the CDC guidelines. The Packers will not be asking for vaccination identification.
The organization will also be making one major change to the ticketing operations for home games at Lambeau Field.
Starting this season, the team will only be accepting mobile tickets as entry into Lambeau Field for all home games. The team will not be accepting paper tickets as a form of entry into any games.
During the playoffs this past season, the team used mobile tickets as way of entry into their home games and determined it was a successful experience for both the organization and fans. Mobile tickets have been adopted by other sports teams and leagues, as well as in other industry’s such as at concerts and travel. Mobile Tickets will make it easier for fans to sell, send and manage their tickets. It will also allow the Packers to communicate effectively with fans who will entering Lambeau Field that day for the game.
Ticket holders can manage their tickets through their online account on packers.com or the Packers mobile app. Within their online accounts, Season Ticket Holders can use the tickets themselves, transfer the tickets to another fan, donate their tickets or post tickets for sale.
Season Ticket Holders, Club Seat Holders and Suite Holders will not receive printed game tickets any more. All guests who attend a game at Lambeau Field will need to enter with mobile tickets, whether they have season tickets or they purchased the tickets on the secondary market.
Some upcoming dates to remember:
- Training camp is still being finalized.
- Annual Shareholders Meeting will be held on Monday, July 26 at 11 a.m. at Lambeau Field
- Packers 5K Run/Walk, presented by Bellin Health will return this summer and be held on Saturday, July 24
- Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health is set for Saturday, Aug. 7 with more information to be announced soon.
