Lambeau Field is ready for Sunday’s Packers-Bills game, which will revisit the Packers’ storied past as the team wears their third jersey.
The third jersey, which debuted during the 2015 season, is a re-creation of the team’s uniform from 1937-48, a special time in Packers history in which they won two of their record 13 NFL championships.
The jerseys are navy blue and gold, the Packers’ predominant color scheme over their first three decades. Faded gold pants and high navy socks complete the historic ensemble. Fans can purchase sideline apparel, uniforms and other third jersey Packers apparel at the Packers Pro Shop, both in the store and online.
Game attendees are reminded that while printed season tickets are still an accepted form of entry, PDF or ‘Print at Home’ tickets have been eliminated; those who purchased tickets online through the secondary market or have received forwarded tickets must use mobile tickets on their device to enter the game. Instructions and tutorials on how to use mobile tickets are available at packers.com/tickets/mobile-ticketing. Those using mobile tickets are encouraged to download their tickets to their device prior to the game.

Prior to kickoff, the national anthem will be performed by the University of Wisconsin Marching Band, and a flyover will be performed by a KC-135R, from the 128th Air Refueling Wing, based out of Milwaukee.
The University of Wisconsin Marching Band will perform on the field during the half and following the game for the “5th Quarter.” Also during halftime, the High School Quarterback Challenge, presented by HPE and Camera Corner will take place on the field.
