Lambeau Field is preparing for Sunday's NFC Championship game, set to kick off at 2:05 p.m. CT. The game is presented by American Family Insurance.

Sunday's game will again welcome ticketed fans, with approximately 6,500 tickets that were available to Season Ticket Holders who opted in for the chance to get tickets. All tickets are mobile and they are not able to be sold or transferred. A screen shot of a mobile ticket will not be valid for entry. Additional guests will include invited frontline healthcare workers and first responders, and league-mandated allotment of visiting team guests.

Fans attending the game are reminded they must follow all COVID-19 protocols, including remaining within their socially distanced pod of seats unless using the restroom or purchasing food or beverages and wearing face coverings at all times. Lack of adherence to the protocols would be a violation of the fan code of conduct, and could result in ejection from the game and/or arrest.  

Those who purchased tickets are required to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms prior to the game. Fans who are feeling ill, have a member of their household who is ill (or under quarantine), or those who have recently been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 are asked not to attend.

Fans should note that no bags, purses or carry-in items will be permitted into the stadium, including seat backs or clear bags that have been allowed in the past. A small clutch purse is allowed, but size must not exceed 4.5'' x 6.5.''

Lambeau Field parking lots, which will be open to ticket holders who purchased a mobile parking pass along with their tickets through Ticketmaster, open two hours prior to kickoff at 12:05 p.m. Fans are reminded that tailgating in the Lambeau Field parking lots will not be permitted on Sunday. Security staff will be monitoring the lots to ensure that game attendees make their way to the gates soon after arrival.

Gates to the stadium also open at 12:05 p.m., and attendees are asked to enter through the gate listed on their ticket to allow for safe, efficient entry for everyone. Fans entering the gates on Sunday will receive free Bellin Health face masks, while supplies last. Fans should expect to see staff members and signage throughout the stadium reminding fans to wear their masks and to stay socially distanced while entering, exiting and standing in line for concessions. Fans will also be asked to follow one-way traffic signs in the concourse. Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the concourses and enhanced cleaning measures during the game will be in place.

The Lambeau Field Atrium, including the Packers Pro Shop and 1919 Kitchen & Tap, will open to ticketed guests only beginning at 12:05. The Packers Hall of Fame and the Johnsonville Tailgate Village will not be open on Sunday.

Due to the crowd size, game attendees should expect a more limited menu of concession items than they'd find at a typical game, with fewer open concession stand locations. Fans are asked to use the concession stands on the 100 level of the concourse as more variety and options will be available. Traditional stadium favorites such as brats, hot dogs, pizza, pretzels and chili will be available at the walk-up concession stands, along with packaged beverages and hot beverages. The new grab-and-go stands, many of which are new to fans this season, will also be open in five locations throughout the stadium with different hot food options such as BBQ, chicken tenders, cheese curds and fries, as well as packaged snacks and bottled beverages.

To protect fans on gameday, Delaware North has added social distancing measures at points of sale and replaced normal condiment stands with single-use packets. Also, no vendors will be selling concessions in the stadium bowl.

Fans are also reminded that Lambeau Field is entirely cashless, with credit/debit card payment methods as well as contactless payment solutions. Those who do not use credit or bank cards may use free cash-to-card conversion stations, which issue payment cards that can be used at Lambeau Field, as well as at other retailers, restaurants and businesses outside the stadium where MasterCard is accepted. Fans can load between $5 and $500 on the cards, and funds will be available to users for five years from the last date money was loaded on the card. Conversion stations will be available at sections 122, 319, 326, 642, 750 and in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

Game attendees can learn more at the FAQ page online at packers.com/tickets/playoffs-faq and by watching the "Know Before You Go" video at packers.com/video/know-before-you-go. The team asks fans not attending the game in person to enjoy watching responsibly by limiting the people with whom they cheer to their household and continuing to follow the guidelines from the Brown County and Wisconsin Departments of Health as well as those from the CDC.
