Lambeau Field ready for Sunday's contest against Atlanta Falcons

Posted Dec 5, 2013

Dave Robinson to be honored at halftime, Punt Pass and Kick competition to take place, Play 60 winners to attend game

Packers fans attending Sunday’s contest against the Atlanta Falcons are being reminded that the kickoff time has changed to noon CST, as was announced by the NFL.

Fans at Sunday’s game will be able to witness history, as Pro Football Hall of Famer Dave Robinson will receive his Hall of Fame ring and will see his name unveiled on the stadium façade inside Lambeau Field, an honor reserved for Packers who have been enshrined in Canton. Hall of Fame President Steve Perry, Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy and Robinson will speak at the ceremony, which will take place at halftime. A card stunt sponsored by EarthLink will feature a tribute to Robinson as well.

The Packers’ featured alumni this weekend are Don Majkowski and Paul Coffman. The two are
scheduled to make appearances throughout the weekend at various locations, including fan activities at the Packers Pro Shop, Tundra Tailgate Zone and Legends Club leading up to kickoff.

Prior to Sunday’s game, the Packers will host the team championship of the annual NFL Punt, Pass and Kick competition at the Don Hutson Center. The participants, 20 boys and 20 girls ages 6 to 15, advanced through local, regional and sectional competitions across Wisconsin to reach the championship contest, and will display their passing talents on Lambeau Field as part of the pregame festivities. The competition’s winners will be introduced at that time.

Also on Sunday, 24 Wisconsin youth from schools that participated in the NFL’s Fuel Up to Play 60 program this year will be introduced from the field before the national anthem. Students from Somerset Middle School, De Forest Middle School, Houdini Elementary School in Appleton, Rock River Intermediate School in Waupun, St Martin Lutheran in Clintonville and Kewaskum Middle School were selected by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, Fuel Up to Play 60’s sponsor, to attend the game.

The Play 60 group of children will be led onto the field by Play 60 Super Kid Gannon Demler of
Appleton. Demler was selected as the Super Kid by the NFL through an online essay contest and
received two game tickets, a Play 60 jersey and Play 60 sweatpants.

Country music recording artist Austin Webb will perform the national anthem. Webb is most known for country hit “Slip on By.”

In addition, the Packers and WPS Health Insurance will be recognizing U.S. Navy BM2 Nicholas
Popowski through Operation Fan Mail on-field prior to the national anthem. Popowski has given more than 12 years of service, and has traveled to every continent in the world as a boatswain mate, the oldest job in the Navy.

Also taking place at Sunday’s 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.

The Lambeau Field Atrium, guest relations desk, Tundra Tailgate Zone and parking lot will open at 8 a.m. for ticketed guests only. Gates will open at 10 a.m.
