Lambeau Field is ready for Sunday’s Packers-Broncos game, which will revisit the Packers’ history as the team wears their third jersey.
The third jersey, which debuted during the 2015 season, is a re-creation of the team’s uniform from 1937-48, a special time in Packers history in which they won two of their record 13 NFL championships. The jerseys are navy blue and gold, the Packers’ predominant color scheme over their first three decades. Faded gold pants and high navy socks complete the historic ensemble. Fans can purchase sideline apparel, uniforms and other third jersey Packers apparel at the Packers Pro Shop, both in the store and online.
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 only buy verified tickets from official sources and team partners, such as Ticketmaster’s NFL Ticket Exchange, the official marketplace of the NFL. Ticket packages are also available through Vivid Seats, the official fan experience and travel partner of the Green Bay Packers. Fans can access verified tickets via packers.com (link available at packers.com/tickets) or the Packers Mobile App, ensuring that all tickets purchased are authentic and valid for admission.
The Lambeau Field parking lots will open Sunday at 8 a.m., with stadium gates opening at 10 a.m. The Lambeau Field Atrium, including 1919 Kitchen & Tap, the Packers Hall of Fame and Packers Pro Shop will be open to ticketed guests only via the American Family Insurance Gate beginning at 8 a.m., with no exit/re-entry ticket scanning. The team is also reminding fans to allow plenty of time to enter the stadium, and enter through the specific gates indicated on their tickets.
Fans on Sunday can enjoy the Johnsonville Tailgate Village, the permanent tailgating and event space in Lambeau Field’s east side parking lot. The JTV, along with the parking lots, will open at 8 a.m. for ticketed and non-ticketed guests alike and will feature live music, food, beverages and a festive tailgating atmosphere.
Fans entering the game will receive a free pair of sunglasses, compliments of Sentry, at all gate entrances.
Two featured alumni are scheduled to make appearances Sunday; Eugene Robinson and Jeff Dellenbach will be taking part in fan activities at surprise locations around Lambeau Field and the Legends Club, respectively, leading up to kickoff. Chris Jacke will also be appearing in the U.S. Cellular Loft to greet fans prior to the game.
During pregame, the Packers and WPS Health Solutions will recognize U.S. Marine Corps veteran Kim Graff and her family on the field.
The national anthem will be performed by Epic Records singer-songwriter A.J. Mitchell and a flyover will be performed by two U.S. Navy F/A-18E Super Hornets from Naval Air Station Lemoore, California. The formation will be led by Commander Patrick McKenna, a Middleton native, and supported by Lieutenant Griffin Stangel, a Madison native, both combat experienced aviators and lifelong Packers fans.
During halftime, the High School Quarterback Challenge, presented by HPE and Camera Corner will take place on the field. The competition will feature players from Campbellsport High School and Racine St. Catherine’s High School. Also at halftime, the Oneida Nation Pow Wow and Smoke Dancers will perform on the field.
