Lambeau Field is set for Sunday's Packers Vs. Cancer game, presented by Bellin Health, which will recognize and honor those who have battled and continue to battle cancer.
The Packers Vs. Cancer effort, which is aimed at raising awareness of all cancers, increasing cancer screenings and raising funds to fight the disease, runs throughout the month of October. The game will honor survivors and those who have been touched by cancer in a variety of ways, with video board features highlighting the experiences of several Packers alumni and coaches. Fans entering all stadium gates will receive a Packers Vs. Cancer roller banner, courtesy of Bellin Health.
The Packers Pro Shop is selling two new Packers Vs. Cancer New Era hats: a black cap and a black and green winter knit hat, both of which have a Packers logo on the front and Packers Vs. Cancer logo on the side. The hats are available now, both in-store and online, with $5 from each hat sale going directly to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation. Shoppers at the Packers Pro Shop can also take part by adding $1 or more to their purchase through October, which will contribute to VLCF's ongoing cancer research programs.
Halftime of Sunday's game will pay tribute to the Super Bowl XXXI champion team, with several dozen alumni in attendance from the 1996 roster to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the game. The alumni will be introduced from the fourth level of Lambeau Field.
The Packers strongly encourage game attendees to follow updated CDC guidelines, which includes wearing a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Packers staff members will be wearing masks in indoor spaces on gameday, including in the club levels and in the Packers Pro Shop and Packers Hall of Fame. While game attendees are not required to wear masks, the Packers encourage fans to bring masks along to the game for use in indoor areas. More information about how CDC recommendations apply to spaces at Lambeau Field is online at https://pckrs.com/covid. Protocols are subject to change.
Fans are reminded that all tickets are mobile-only, as the Packers have transitioned to mobile tickets. Attendees are asked to arrive in plenty of time to the gate listed on their ticket and have their mobile tickets ready to be scanned, as entry may take longer than normal as fans and staff adjust to mobile tickets.
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. This year's pregame will include new videos, graphics and an exciting new player introduction tunnel feature. The team is asking for patience from fans prior to and during the game, as Lambeau Field is still ramping up to full staffing levels throughout concessions, retail and guest services. Fans may experience longer lines than normal in some areas or see some concession stands that are not open or have limited menus.
Other than parking, which is cash-only, fans should note that Lambeau Field and all of 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.
Prior to the national anthem, the Packers and WPS Health Solutions will be recognizing U.S. Army veteran and National Guardsmen Eric Bebee and his family through Operation Fan Mail on the video boards. Country pop singer Lindsay Ell will sing the national anthem. Two T-38 Talons will perform a flyover, with the flyover team made up of Wisconsin natives.
At halftime, the High School Quarterback Challenge, presented by HPE and Camera Corner will take place on the field. The competition will feature players from Madison West High School in Madison, and Campbellsport High School in Campbellsport, Wis.
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". Stadium cushions are 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. All fans entering on gamedays will use walk-through metal detectors.
