Lambeau Field ready for Monday night's contest against Chicago Bears

Posted Oct 31, 2013

Verizon to host annual cell phone drive at gates prior to kickoff

Packers fans attending Monday Night’s rivalry contest against the Chicago Bears are being reminded to allow extra time for travel and entry into the stadium. The Leo Frigo Bridge, part of Interstate Highway 43, is closed indefinitely. Fans that utilize the bridge for travel to and from Lambeau Field should plan an alternate route. A Wisconsin DOT advisory with a full description of Packers gameday travel recommendations can be found online at http://pckrs.com/vc7w.

Prior to kickoff, all fans attending the game are invited to donate their no-longer-used cell phones and accessories from any wireless provider to Verizon’s HopeLine program, which collects no-longer-used cell phones and distributes them to survivors of domestic violence. Volunteers will be accepting donated phones and equipment at each of the seven Lambeau Field gates from 5:30 p.m. until game time at 7:40 p.m. For each phone collected, Verizon Wireless will contribute $10 to Golden House, an organization in Green Bay that helps survivors of domestic violence.

Fans unable to attend the Nov. 4 game can still participate by donating their no-longer-used phones at any Verizon Wireless Communications Store at any time. To find store locations, visit www.verizonwireless.com.

Also in the parking lot, representatives from Xbox will be on hand to preview the new Xbox One system in the fan walkway near the Oneida Nation Gate. Fans in attendance will have an opportunity to be among the first to play select game titles on the new Xbox One system.

The Lambeau Field Atrium will display original costumes from the Superman franchise, in celebration of the release of the blockbuster “Man of Steel” on Nov. 12, and the 75th anniversary of Superman. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/manofsteel.

Two alumni are scheduled to make appearances throughout the weekend at various locations. Chad Clifton and Aaron Kampman will be taking part in fan activities at the Packers Pro Shop, Tundra Tailgate Zone and Legends Club leading up to kickoff.

John Vincent will perform the national anthem, and four large American flags will be unfurled on the field.Vincent is a singer at Mike Ditka’s Steakhouse in Chicago, Ill.

In addition, the Packers and WPS Health Insurance will be recognizing U.S. Marine Corps First Lieutenant Jonathan Eisele through Operation Fan Mail on-field prior to the national anthem.

During halftime, the Sideswipe Performance Team, a premier martial arts-based performance team, will entertain fans by combining martial arts, dance and gravity-defying acrobatics on the field.

Also taking place at the Monday Night matchup is the premier gameday tailgate party in the Tundra Tailgate Zone (TTZ) in the Lambeau Field parking lot. For a full list of gameday information, please visit packers.com/gameday/gameday-information.html.
