Lambeau Field is set for Sunday's Packers-Washington game, which will revisit the Packers' storied past as the team wears their historic alternate uniform.

Making its debut this 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, and matching green pants with gold stripes and matching green socks will 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.

The 50s Classic Collection is now available for fans to purchase in the Packers Pro Shop, and includes the 50s Classic Jersey along with a new line of assorted apparel.

Halftime of Sunday's game will honor Pro Football Hall of Famer Bobby Dillon. The late Dillon, who was elected to the Hall as part of the Centennial Class of 2020, owns the franchise record with 52 interceptions in eight NFL seasons. Dillon played from 1952-59, was named to All-Pro teams from 1953-58 and was a Pro Bowl selection from 1955-58. Members of his family will be present at Sunday's game, and a video tribute to him will be played. Also at halftime, the Packers will honor Willie Davis, who passed away last year. Davis, in addition to authoring a Hall of Fame career during his 10 seasons with the Lombardi-era Packers, was a long-time member of the Packers Board of Directors who was elected in 1994 and became emeritus in 2005.

The Packers encourage game attendees to follow CDC guidelines, which includes wearing a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Packers staff members will be wearing masks in indoor spaces on gameday. While game attendees are not required to wear masks, fans are encouraged to bring masks to the game for use in indoor areas. More information 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. The team is asking for patience from fans prior to and during the game, as fans may experience longer lines than normal. 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. 

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 entry, signs with the phrase "Lambeau Field: 81,441. Welcome to the world's largest family reunion" will be available to pick up at Titletown off Ridge Road. The signs are from the Packers Everywhere "Give Us a Sign" contest and the winning slogan is from Richard Hendricks of De Pere, who will be in attendance. Fans entering the game will receive free sunglasses, courtesy of Sentry, at each gate.

Prior to the national anthem, the Packers and WPS Health Solutions will be recognizing U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsmen Omar and Laura Azmitia through Operation Fan Mail on the video boards. Country rock singer Jesse G. will sing the national anthem and a flyover will be performed by U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets supported by Naval Air Station Lemoore, California.

Also at halftime, the High School Quarterback Challenge, presented by HPE and Camera Corner will take place on the field, featuring players from Green Bay East and Manitowoc Lincoln High Schools.

Fans are reminded of the stadium safety policy. No bags or purses will be allowed inside Lambeau Field unless they are clear and are no larger than 12" by 6" by 12". All fans entering on gamedays will use walk-through metal detectors. More info is available at https://www.packers.com/news/lambeau-field-carry-in-policy.
