TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE AT PACKERS' TICKET OFFICE, PRO SHOP, ONLINE

The Green Bay Packers Tuesday announced additional player appearances for the fifth annual Draft Party, set for April 26 in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

Atari Bigby, Nick Collins, Mason Crosby and Brandon Jackson will join the previously announced lineup of Jarrett Bush, Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, James Jones, and Koren Robinson.

The players will participate in question-and-answer sessions on stage and sign autographs for attendees via a ticketed session. Attendees will receive a ticket for one randomly assigned autograph session when entering the party.

Tickets for the event, priced at $25, now are available through the Packers' ticket office (in person or over the phone at 920/569-7501) and through the Packers Pro Shop (in person or online). They also remain available at 18 Wisconsin Mills Fleet Farm locations, where they must be purchased in person. Children 3 and younger are free.

Fans in attendance will hear from Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy, GM Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

This year's party will feature the use of brighter projection screens and additional audio components, allowing for better viewing and hearing of the network TV and Newsradio 620 WTMJ coverage of the draft. An additional LED video board, 4 feet by 6 feet, will be stationed above the stage. Several large flat-screen TVs also will be located throughout the Atrium.

The event, which runs from 2 to 9 p.m. (doors will open at 1 p.m.), features popular raffle and door prizes which allows fans to obtain autographed footballs, mini-helmets and authentic helmets. The first-round draft pick contest's first prize is an autographed football from the Packers' 2008 No. 1 pick. This year's free commemorative item is a Packers Draft Party T-shirt.

The Atrium again will be a Wi-Fi "Hot Spot." Computer stations also will be available, enabling fans to track draft information via the Web. A limited amount of tables will have power available, and a charging station also will be set up for users to recharge their laptop computer batteries.

Other features of the day include:

  • Additional seating in Legends Club on the Atrium's fourth floor.
  • Packers Garage Sale.
  • Interactive games for kids and adults.
  • Viewing opportunity of Lambeau Field.
  • Food and drink will be available for purchase at Curly's Pub, Hall of Fame Grill, Frozen in Time and Atrium eateries.
