Lambeau Field is set for Sunday's Packers-Rams game, which will highlight Pro Football Hall of Famer Charles Woodson at halftime.

Woodson's name will be unveiled on the Lambeau Field façade in honor of his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction this year, and he will be presented with his Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence.

Woodson came to Green Bay as a free agent in 2006 after spending his first eight seasons with the Oakland Raiders. He spent the next seven years with the Packers, posting 38 interceptions and 115 passes defensed. Lauded for his exceptional talent, playmaking abilities and outstanding leadership, the versatile defender was selected to four consecutive Pro Bowls while with the Packers. He holds franchise records for the most touchdowns on interceptions (nine) and the most defensive touchdowns (10). In 2009, he was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year and earned All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors. The next year, he helped lead the Packers, with one of the league's best defenses, to a victory in Super Bowl XLV. He returned to the Raiders for the final three years of his playing career before retiring after the 2015 season.

The Packers strongly encourage game attendees to follow updated CDC guidelines, which includes wearing a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Packers staff members will be wearing masks in indoor spaces on gameday, including in the club levels and in the Packers Pro Shop and Packers Hall of Fame. While game attendees are not required to wear masks, the Packers encourage fans to bring masks along to the game for use in indoor areas. More information about how CDC recommendations apply to spaces at Lambeau Field is online at https://pckrs.com/covid. Protocols are subject to change.

Fans are reminded that all tickets are mobile-only, as the Packers have transitioned to mobile tickets. Attendees are asked to arrive in plenty of time to the gate listed on their ticket and have their mobile tickets ready to be scanned, as entry may take longer than normal as fans and staff adjust to mobile tickets.

Fireworks will be set off from the stadium roof one hour prior to kickoff to remind fans to start making their way to the stadium in order to be inside by kickoff. The team is asking for patience from fans prior to and during the game in case they experience longer lines than normal in some areas or concession stands with limited offerings.

Other than parking, which is cash-only, fans should note that Lambeau Field and all of its businesses are now cashless. Fans should plan ahead to bring credit/debit cards or use contactless payment solutions. A cash-to-card conversion station is available in the Atrium for those who do not use credit/debit cards.

Fans entering the game will receive a wall flag courtesy of Coke.

Prior to the national anthem, the Packers and WPS Health Solutions will be recognizing U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant Commander Eric Quigley and his family through Operation Fan Mail on the video boards. Singer and vocal coach Ben Tajnai will sing the national anthem and a flyover will be performed by F-16s from the 138th Fighter Wing from the Tulsa Air National Guard.

Also at halftime, the High School Quarterback Challenge, presented by HPE and Camera Corner will take place on the field, featuring players from Milwaukee Marshall and Milwaukee Riverside High Schools.

Fans are reminded of the stadium safety policy. No bags or purses will be allowed inside Lambeau Field unless they are clear and are no larger than 12" by 6" by 12". All fans entering on gamedays will use walk-through metal detectors. More info is available at https://www.packers.com/news/lambeau-field-carry-in-policy.
