The Green Bay Packers are set to host the team’s second annual “Green Bay Packers Coaching School” at Lambeau Field on Sunday, May 31, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The complimentary coaching school has a curriculum exclusively designed for youth football coaches, and can accommodate a maximum of 300 coaches. The event will feature innovative classroom sessions in the Lambeau Field Atrium, as well as on-field football instruction from top local high school and youth football coaches in the Don Hutson Center.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. and the Green Bay Packers announced there will be additional opportunities for Packers fans to share in the experience of former quarterback Brett Favre’s induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and his number retirement on Saturday, July 18, 2015.
“We are pleased to be able to offer new options for fans to share in the excitement of the evening,” said Hall of Fame Inc. President Perry Kidder. “We’ve worked closely with the Green Bay Packers and the Journal Broadcast Group to make this happen.”
Viewing Inside the Lambeau Field Seating Bowl
A ticketed viewing opportunity will be held inside the seating bowl for fans who would like to be at Lambeau Field to watch the ceremony live on the TundraVision video boards. During the evening, Favre also will make an appearance in the bowl to address the crowd. “This viewing opportunity from the stadium will be a unique complement to a special evening and allow more people to share their excitement with Brett,” explained Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. Tickets will be $4 each, with net proceeds going to Favre 4 Hope.
Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 12, 2015 and be available through Ticketmaster in person, over the phone or via the Internet. A limit of eight per order will be established. Parking, also priced at $4, will be available in Lambeau Field’s west-side parking lot.
Event Carried Live on TV and Online
Additionally, the induction ceremony will be carried live by the Packers TV Network and NFL Network as well as streamed live on packers.com.
“We are pleased to work with the Hall of Fame and the Packers to coordinate and offer this live broadcast,” stated Carl Moll, Director of Network Operations, for the Journal Broadcast Group. “We know there is great interest among fans to see the ceremony. Now, everyone who would like to see the ceremony will be able to do so.”
This will be the 45th Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame induction banquet. The banquet and ceremony, to be held inside the Lambeau Field Atrium, is sold out. More than 1,600 will attend the dinner and program.
In-Game Name and Number Unveiling Ceremony during Season
Later this fall, a separate ceremony will take place in which Favre’s name and retired number will be formally unveiled inside the stadium on the north façade. The date will be determined after the NFL schedule is released in April.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is a non-profit corporation independent of the Green Bay Packers that guides the Hall as a historic national sports venue and educational resource to the Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin. The Hall raises funds through its annual induction banquet, Golf Classic and other events to preserve the history of the Green Bay Packers and expand its archives. Historic memorabilia donated by individuals to the Hall may qualify as tax-deductible gifts.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. Golf Classic is set for Monday, July 13, 2015, at The Bull in Sheboygan Falls, WI. Those interested in participating in the event can contact Holly Borga (920-965-6986; firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown Count Veterans Memorial Arena, the Hall moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field. In 2003, it was relocated to the Lambeau Field Atrium. The Hall of Fame is currently closed for the ongoing Atrium renovation project and will reopen in 2015. While the Packers Hall of Fame is closed the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay is hosting a temporary exhibit with selected items from the Hall’s archives.
