Lambeau Field is set to welcome fans for Sunday afternoon's Packers-Jets game, which will revisit the Packers' storied past as the team wears their historic 50s Classic alternate uniform.

Returning for a second straight 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 and pints.

With ongoing construction on the east side of the stadium, fans are reminded to pay attention as they approach the stadium, as new traffic signage will direct them to the appropriate lanes and parking lots to enhance efficiency. Those with parking passes should display them on their mirrors.

Fans attending Sunday's game will also notice pedestal-style ticket scanners, aimed at getting fans into the stadium quicker and more easily. Ticket holders can either scan mobile tickets that have been added to their digital wallet on the upper part of the pedestal, or scan each mobile ticket's barcode on the lower part of the pedestal. Each ticket must be scanned separately, and fans are asked to have their mobile tickets ready to scan as they approach the gate to allow for more efficient entry.

Fans should note that Lambeau Field and all 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.

Facial-haired fans are invited to visit the Wahl Mobile Barber Shop on the stadium's west side parking lot near the Kwik Trip Gate. The shop is parked in honor of Green Bay combat veteran Ryan Baudhuin, named as the winner of Wahl's "Benevolent Beards" contest for his work organizing hunting trips for veterans. Fans can receive free beard trims, and for each trim, Wahl will donate $100 to Baudhuin's charity, up to $5,000.

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 University of Wisconsin Marching Band will return to Lambeau Field for the first time in three years on Sunday, and will perform prior to the game, during halftime and after the game for the 5th Quarter. The band will also perform the national anthem alongside a large American flag on the field.

Prior to the national anthem, the Packers and WPS Health Solutions will be recognizing Wisconsin native Colonel Israel "Izzy" Thompson through Operation Fan Mail on the field. A flyover will be performed by "The Tulsa Vipers," the Oklahoma Air National Guard 138th Fighter Wing's 125th Fighter Squadron, which will fly several F-16C aircraft over Lambeau Field.

Halftime will also include the High School Quarterback Challenge presented by HPE/Camera Corner, which will feature the Weyauwega-Fremont Warhawks and the Ashwaubenon Jaguars.

Fans are reminded of the stadium safety policy. No bags or purses will be allowed inside Lambeau Field unless they are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and are no larger than 12" by 6" by 12". The full carry-in policy can be found at packers.com/lambeau-field/carry-in-policy. Guests with special needs should note that wheelchair assistance is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Those with mobility challenges are encouraged to use their own wheelchairs.

The Lambeau Field parking lots will open Sunday at 8 a.m., with gates opening at 10 a.m. The Atrium will be open to ticket holders at 8 a.m. via the American Family Insurance Gate. Fans can visit the Johnsonville Tailgate Village in the east side parking lot, to enjoy food, beverages and a festive tailgating atmosphere.
