The Green Bay Packers Monday announced details for the team's sixth 'Family Night, Presented by FOX 11,' set for Saturday, Aug. 5.
The NFL's most popular scrimmage, the Packers sold every available seat in the stadium bowl for the 2004 and 2005 editions. This year's 'Family Night' will feature an intra-squad scrimmage between the Packers' offense and defense. Evening activities get underway at 6 p.m. on the field, with the scrimmage to begin at approximately 7:30 p.m.
"The Packers eagerly anticipate this summer's sixth edition of Family Night," said Packers President/COO John Jones. "We'll be welcoming fans and families from around the state once again to experience a special game-like evening in Lambeau Field. It has become a great summer tradition during training camp and it's always a thrill to see the younger fans watch their favorite Packers play on Lambeau."
"We are excited to partner with the Green Bay Packers on "Packers Family Night, Presented by FOX 11," said Jay Zollar, WLUK FOX 11's Vice President and General Manager. "Our viewers have been anxiously awaiting this announcement so they can plan their visit to Lambeau Field for a first-hand look at this year's team. This is a great partnership that aligns their favorite television station, FOX 11, with their favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers."
Included in the evening's activities, per custom, will be the popular "Shirt Off Our Back," with approximately 20 jerseys - all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed scrimmage - to be given away in a random drawing, other entertainment and a spectacular fireworks show to conclude the night.
A popular summer attraction, the event drew 62,492 in 2005, 60,217 in 2004, 48,898 in 2001, 50,240 in 2000 and 46,420 in 1999. 'Family Night' did not take place for two years (2002-03) during Lambeau Field's redevelopment.
Tickets, priced again at $8 with families in mind, will go on sale Saturday, June 17, at 10 a.m. and may be purchased either in person, over the phone or via the Internet. A limit of eight tickets per purchase has been implemented this year for an initial sales period to allow more fans to have the chance to make a transaction.
A group ticket program (minimum of 50 tickets) has been established as well, to continue to accommodate the groups that have regularly attended the event since its inception. A group order application form is available online, in person at the Packers ticket office or can be requested to be faxed by calling 920/569-7501. Group ticket orders are restricted to approved groups and organizations, and are to be used for the sole purpose of accommodating a group or organizational outing. Resale is prohibited.
Space is limited for group orders and all requests must be received by June 13, 2006. Orders will be filled in the sequence received. Groups will be seated together in the same vicinity.
For non-group purchases, in-person sales will be conducted at a number of locations, including the Packers ticket office at Lambeau Field, the Resch Center box office and all TicketStar outlets. Area TicketStar outlets include Oneida Casino Concierge Desk, Cub Foods in Appleton, Curry's Foods in Marinette, Dr. Freuds in Manitowoc and Festival Foods in Oshkosh.
Over the telephone, tickets can be purchased by calling 920/494-3401 in Green Bay, or toll free, 800/895-0071, from any other location.
