Packers to allow limited fans into divisional game
GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers’ NFC Divisional Playoff game at Lambeau Field Saturday, Jan. 16, at 3:35 against the Los Angeles Rams will include attendance by season ticket holders in addition to invited frontline health care workers and first responders.
Approximately 6,000 tickets will be available for purchase by season ticket holders who opted in this past summer.
Fans will be arranged in socially distanced pods of two, four and six tickets throughout the stadium.
Tickets will not be able to be resold or transferred, and all tickets will be mobile.
The season ticket holders who purchase the tickets are responsible for coordinating all attendees within their pod because entry to the game will be via a mobile ticket scan on the purchaser’s mobile device.
No exceptions will be made to this policy.
These steps have been taken to ensure the safety of all people attending the game.
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.
It’s expected season ticket holders attend the game with members of their household.
Suites and club seats will not be accessible for this game.
“Our players have enjoyed the energy provided by the limited fans we’ve had over the past four games,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We’re looking forward to welcoming our season ticket holders to add to the atmosphere in the playoffs. We’ve seen our COVID-19 protocols in action and are confident we can safely add additional fans.”
The protocols used at Lambeau Field and across the NFL have proven to be effective, as no local COVID-19 case clusters have been traced to NFL games, according to the relevant health departments in NFL cities.
Through the regular season, the NFL had a total of 109 games with more than 1 million fans in attendance.
Face coverings will be required, and tailgating in the Lambeau Field parking lots will also be prohibited for playoff games.
No carry-in items, including seat backs, clear bags or purses, will be permitted.
A small clutch purse for personal belongings is allowed.
