Training camp to open July 30; Family Night tickets on sale now

Posted Jul 25, 2011

Aug. 6 Family Night to Benefit Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Program

It’s “Back to Football, Presented by Bellin Health” at Lambeau Field. Players report Friday, July 29, training camp will see its first practice Saturday night, July 30, and Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health, is set for Aug. 6 with tickets on sale now.

“The Packers are excited for the opening of training camp and to be preparing for the season,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We’re especially looking forward to Family Night and having the defending champions in Lambeau Field for the first time this season. With the unique offseason, the format for training camp and in the interest of player safety, the football portion of the evening will be more of a practice-like setting, but will still have plenty of action and full-team drills.

“Overall, the evening will be filled with all the activities our families have come to enjoy and will be capped off with a spectacular fireworks show.”

Tickets, priced at $10, are available through Ticketmaster and may be purchased in person, over the phone or via the Internet. There is no ticket limit on purchases. Tickets also can be purchased at the Packers’ ticket office in person. All individuals, regardless of age, require a ticket for admittance.

A direct link to online ticket sales information can be found here.

Over the phone, tickets can be purchased by calling toll free at 800/745-3000. The toll-free Ticketmaster Express number, 866/448-7849, also can be used. It is a self-service information line utilizing an automated system. A TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf) number also is available at 877/474-4TDD.

In-person sales will be conducted at a number of Ticketmaster locations, including Wal-Mart locations throughout Wisconsin, as well as Boston Store locations in Brookfield, Glendale, Greendale, Janesville, Madison, Milwaukee, Racine and Wauwatosa. Other in-person locations are Younkers in Green Bay and the Milwaukee Theatre.

‘Family Night,’ set for Saturday evening, Aug. 6, will feature a full-team practice. Evening activities get underway in the stadium at 5:30 p.m., followed by on-field football drills at 6:30. The event will benefit the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

Included in the evening’s activities will be the popular Chili’s “Jerseys Off Our Backs” promotion with approximately 20 jerseys – all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed practice – to be given away in a random drawing, other entertainment, the Copps–Pick ’n Save Family Night Picnic and the spectacular Copps–Pick ’n Save Fireworks Show to conclude the night.

The Kemps Packers Experience returns this year. The evening will feature other activities for the younger fans, including sidewalk chalk and face painting.

Parking for the event will be $5, with net proceeds to be donated to the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Program.

In case of inclement weather, no refunds will be issued unless all stadium activities – from 5:30 p.m. until the end of the fireworks show – are cancelled.

For fans not attending the event, WLUK-TV FOX 11 again will originate a statewide telecast. In addition to Green Bay, the event will be televised on WITI-TV in Milwaukee, WMSN-TV in Madison, WFXS-TV in Wausau and WLAX-TV in La Crosse. Hosted by Drew Smith and other members of the FOX 11 sports and news staffs, the live broadcast will start at 6:30 p.m.

The entire training camp schedule is being finalized and will be released in the next day or so.
