  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Aaron Rodgers wins 2014 Bart Starr Award

Posted Jan 15, 2014

Voted on by NFL peers, award recognizes one player for outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community

Athletes in Action has announced that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be honored with the 2014 Bart Starr Award, which recognizes one NFL player for outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community.

Rodgers will be honored during the 27th annual NFL-sanctioned Super Bowl Breakfast, presented by Companies with a Mission, on Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, at 8 a.m. EST at the Marriot Marquis New York (1535 Broadway).

Other finalists for the award were Ryan Clark, safety for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jared Allen, defensive end for the Minnesota Vikings.

The morning will include special guests George Martin, Eric Metaxas, Jim Caviezel, Justin Tuck, Brent Jones, David Tyree and other NFL athletes and coaches to be announced.

In his nine years in the NFL, Rodgers has been active in numerous charitable projects. This fall he partnered with Raise Hope for Congo, speaking publicly about his desire to see an end to the conflict in that country. Rodgers is also an activist for the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC) fund, an organization working to cure childhood cancer and blood disorders. Together with Milwaukee attorney David Gruber, Rodgers created www.itsaaron.com to build awareness for organizations and people who are making a difference in their communities. Additionally, he has been involved with Young Life and the Make-A-Wish foundation, among many other projects.

The winner of the Bart Starr Award is voted on by NFL players and is named after Pro Football Hall of Famer Bart Starr. The award honors the player who best exemplifies Starr’s commitment to family, teammates and the community. Past winners include Jason Witten, London Fletcher, Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, LaDainian Tomlinson, Reggie White and Mike Singletary.

It’s a great privilege to recognize Aaron Rodgers, a fellow Packer, for his team leadership and significant community contributions. Aaron is a great representative of the word ‘gentleman’ and I am proud to have his name associated with this special recognition and award.”
