FAN Hall of Fame

2018-fan-hall-of-fame-logo-high-res-2560

The annual search for the next honoree for the Packers FAN Hall of Fame has begun.

Fans are asked to nominate themselves, a relative or friend for the honor of being the 22nd member of the Packers FAN Hall of Fame with an essay of 500 words or less, describing the merits of the nominee. Each nomination should be accompanied by a photo. The nomination period will remain open until Saturday, Nov. 30.

The first professional football team to have a hall of fame, the Green Bay Packers enhanced that distinction in 1998 by establishing a Packers FAN Hall of Fame. It was founded for the purpose of annually honoring a devout and longtime Packers fan.

The 10 finalists who best represent the spirit of the Packers will be chosen in December by the Packers FAN Hall of Fame selection committee. The final round of voting will be from Jan. 1 through Jan. 31, 2020.

During the voting process, Packers fans will be asked to vote for one of the 10 finalists, whose stories will be profiled on packers.com. The winner will be selected by three different groups of people: Packers fans, previous FAN Hall of Fame honorees and the Packers’ committee.

Fans without internet access can mail their nomination essays, along with their contact information, to the Packers’ Milwaukee office address: Green Bay Packers FAN Hall of Fame, 330 E. Kilbourn Avenue, Suite 1455, Milwaukee, WI 53202. For those mailing applications, a copy of the original photo should be submitted in case of damage or loss.

The honoree's selection will be announced in late February 2020. He or she will receive four club seats to a 2020 Packers home game; a $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate; a road trip for two to a 2020 Packers away game, including game tickets, air fare and hotel accommodations; and a one-year subscription to Packer Plus.

USA Today Network-Wisconsin and Robert Haack Diamonds sponsor the Packers FAN Hall of Fame.
