Lambeau Field ready for Sunday's contest against Vikings

Posted Nov 30, 2012

Game will celebrate Play 60 program; Punt, Pass and Kick finalists to display talents

During Sunday’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, the Packers will celebrate the NFL’s Play 60 program by inviting 24 kids from schools who participated in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program to run through the tunnel onto the field during pregame festivities. The children will also take the field at halftime to compete in a relay race.

In addition, the Packers will host the team championship of the annual NFL Punt, Pass and Kick competition the morning of the game at the Don Hutson Center. The participants, 21 boys and 20 girls ages 6 to 15, advanced through local, regional and sectional competitions across Wisconsin to reach the championship contest. At Sunday’s noon game, all 41 competitors will display their passing talents on Lambeau Field as part of the pregame festivities and the competition’s winners will be introduced.

The winners’ results will be matched against others across the NFL and qualifying individuals will advance to the national contest, which will be held at a to-be-determined NFL playoff game.

Sunday’s game also serves as the annual Toys for Tots collection game. U.S. Marines will be stationed throughout the parking lots at Lambeau Field and at each gate to collect new, unwrapped toys for needy children in the area this holiday season.

As cold weather has arrived in Green Bay, fans are reminded that the Green Bay Metro gameday bus service is available again this year, with extended service to new areas of Green Bay. Further details and gameday route information is available at www.greenbaymetro.org/en-us/packers/default.aspx.

Augie Haas, a native of Milwaukee, will be performing the national anthem on his trumpet. A flyover of Navy F-18 jets supported by VX-9 based at Naval Air Station China Lake, Calif. will follow the national anthem, weather permitting.

In addition, the Packers and WPS will be recognizing U.S. Army Ordnance Core Colonel Patrick Kelly through Operation Fan Mail on-field prior to the national anthem.

Packers alumni Herb Adderley, Dave Robinson and Aaron Taylor will be recognized prior to team introductions and will also be in the Packers Pro Shop on Saturday, Dec. 1, signing autographs from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Also on Saturday, Adderley and Robinson will sign copies of their new book Lombardi’s Left Side in the Pro Shop from 2:30 to 4 p.m. On Sunday, Taylor will be mingling with fans in the Tundra Tailgate Zone from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. while Adderley and Robinson are in the Legends Club for suite and club seat ticket holders.

The Packers Women’s Association (PWA) and UnitedHealthcare will take the field to present a check to Paul’s Pantry from the organization’s latest food drive at Lambeau Field. The PWA’s food drive at the Sept. 30 Packers-Saints game collected a record 12,600 food items and $16,170 for Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay. In addition to helping collect food during the drive, UnitedHealthcare has also donated $5,000 to the food pantry to support its efforts.

Also taking place at Sunday’s game is the premier gameday tailgate party in the Tundra Tailgate Zone (TTZ) in the Lambeau Field parking lot. Activities include interactive games and food and beverage sampling. More information on the Tundra Tailgate Zone and other game features can be found online at www.packers.com/gameday/gameday-information.html#s3.

Fans will receive a Packers car flag presented by Ticketmaster as the game giveaway.
