Lambeau Field is set to welcome fans for Sunday's Packers-Chargers game, which will kick off at noon and honor the team's legendary history as the team wears their 50s Classic alternate uniform.
Returning for the third season, the uniform is inspired by the team's uniforms from 1950-53, which was the second time the team wore green and gold in its history. The uniforms are all green, with gold numbers and stripes similar to the jerseys worn in the 1950s. Matching green pants with gold stripes and matching green socks complete the look.
In the 1950s, the Packers organization was at a turning point amid the rapid growth of the NFL and following the departure of the team's founder Curly Lambeau. During this time, a franchise-saving stock sale helped lay the groundwork for the eventual construction of Lambeau Field and set up the team to stay in Green Bay through modern times ahead of Vince Lombardi's arrival at the end of the decade. A variety of items from the 50s Classic Collection are available for fans to purchase at the Packers Pro Shop, both in-store and online at packersproshop.com, including jerseys, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, caps, knit hats, helmets, can coolers, pins, decals, coffee mugs, tumblers, pints and shot glasses.
Prior to Sunday's game, ticket holders who plan to access their tickets through the Packers mobile app should ensure they have the latest version of the app downloaded. *Fireworks *will be set off from the stadium roof one hour prior to kickoff to remind fans to head toward the stadium to be inside by kickoff.
Fans also should note that Lambeau Field and all its businesses are now cashless, including parking. The new concession stands and other terminals around the stadium also now feature tap-to-pay technology, allowing fans to pay up to four times faster than before. Those who do not have credit/debit cards or contactless payment solutions may use a cash-to-card conversion station located in the Atrium.
Fans are also encouraged to visit the newly renovated upper concourse on the third level, featuring efficient grab-and-go concessions stands along with new LED screens that will keep fans updated on the game action away from their seats. Attendees can also enjoy two levels of the Miller Lite End Zone on the north side of the stadium in the lower concourse. The space includes the grab-and-go Miller Lite Market and the Miller Lite End Zone Bar, a climate-controlled bar with 36 TV screens featuring games from across the league.
Packers Perks members attending Sunday's game are invited to visit the Packers Perks Donut House in the Lambeau Field Atrium to receive a free Kwik Trip Glazer donut while supplies last. Starting two hours prior to kickoff on home gamedays, Packers Perks members can use the tablets at the Donut House kiosk to input their email; when the machine recognizes the fan's email is associated with a Packers Perks account, a donut will be dispensed. Fans can sign up for the program and begin earning points at packersperks.com.
Prior to the national anthem, the Packers will recognize U.S. Air Force Technical Sergeant Justin Padley through Operation Fan Mail, presented by Network Health, on the field. Singer and Racine native Betsy Ade will perform the national anthem and a large American flag will be featured on the field. A flyover will be performed by U.S. Air Force T-38 jets from the 1st Fighter Wing out of Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.
During halftime, the UW-Whitewater Warhawk Marching Band will perform, and will take the field again after the game for the "fifth quarter." The Brookfield East Spartans and the Brookfield Central Lancers will compete at halftime in the High School Quarterback Challenge, presented by HPE and Camera Corner.
