Playoff games at Lambeau Field provide an electric atmosphere and Packers fans are asked to power it up again at Saturday night’s Wild Card matchup vs. the Minnesota Vikings.
Several activities, including more frequent noise meters displayed on the TundraVision video screens and G-Force rally towels, will be incorporated into the game to enhance the excitement.
Before fans enter the stadium they will have the chance to see large snow sculptures, which will be on display in front of the Miller Lite and Oneida Nation Gates. Work on the sculptures will begin today.
The Packers Pro Shop now features a variety of NFC North Division championship apparel and accessories for fans looking to commemorate the team’s latest accomplishment. The complete line can be found online at www.packersproshop.com or in the store.
Opera singer Larry Harris, from New York, will be performing the national anthem. Harris is a former NFL lineman who was drafted by the Houston Oilers in 1976 and played seven years before retiring after an injury-ridden season. Growing up in Texas, he was part of a gospel singing family, taking private voice lessons through junior high and continuing throughout his college and NFL careers. A flyover of one U.S. Coast Guard helicopter will follow the anthem.
In addition, the Packers and WPS will be recognizing U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander David Kliemann through Operation Fan Mail on-field prior to the national anthem.
Packers alumni Zeke Bratkowski and Boyd Dowler will be recognized prior to team introductions and will also be in the Packers Pro Shop on Friday, Jan. 4, signing autographs from 2 to 3:30 p.m. On Saturday, Dowler will be mingling with fans in the Tundra Tailgate Zone from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. while Bratkowski is in the Legends Club for suite and club seat ticket holders.

Fans will receive G-Force rally towels courtesy of Kohl’s Department Stores and the Oneida Nation as the game giveaway. Fans are reminded to make their way to stadium gates early and bring only essential items to ensure efficient passage through screening. This will ensure all fans are in their seats for kickoff.
