Lambeau Field is ready for Sunday’s Packers-Vikings game, and is set to honor Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Kramer at halftime.
During the ceremony, Kramer’s name will be unveiled on the southwest façade of Lambeau Field, and he will be presented with his Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence.
Sunday’s game is this regular season’s first Gold Package game, and the team is reminding fans to take extra care when purchasing game tickets from secondary sources. The Packers have received reports of counterfeit tickets, and fans are advised to buy tickets only from official sources and team partners such as NFL Ticket Exchange.
Game attendees are also 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.
The Packers are reminding fans of the NFL’s 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”. Stadium cushions are also not allowed as a part of the policy, however, stadium seats and stadium pads that contain no pockets or zippers and are 18” wide or smaller are allowed.
