Lambeau Field to continue indefinite hold on hosting fans
GREEN BAY – Due to the continued high levels of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the Green Bay area and across Wisconsin, the Green Bay Packers are continuing the indefinite hold on hosting fans for games at Lambeau Field this season.
The Packers’ next home game is Sunday, Nov. 15, against Jacksonville.
To host fans, the area will need to see a significant improvement in the rate of hospitalizations, as well as in the community infection and positivity rates.
This is based on recommendations from community health care and public health officials.
“As evidenced by the sustained increase in cases in our community, we all need to work together to contain the virus,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “Our players would love to have fans in the stands at Lambeau, but it’s critical for the safety of our community that we all do whatever we can to stop the virus. If the situation improves in the community and state, we’ll be in a position to safely welcome fans to games at Lambeau yet this season.”
To further encourage community members to wear face masks and to show support to those on the front lines, face masks were installed on the Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi statues in front of the Lambeau Field Atrium Nov. 5.
The Packers will continue to evaluate a variety of factors in consultation with local medical and public health officials for the possibility of hosting fans later in the season.
If the team can host fans, season ticket holders who have opted in for the opportunity to purchase tickets will receive instructions about the ticket-purchasing process at a later date.
