Lambeau Field is ready for Sunday's game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.
The organization is reminding game attendees to enter the stadium at the gates listed on their tickets. This will provide for more efficient entry for all fans.
Attendees are also asked to allow plenty of time to enter the stadium gates prior to the game. All fans entering Lambeau Field on gameday will use walk-through metal detectors, a league-wide mandate for use at all NFL stadium gates. The most efficient way through the detectors will be via express lanes at each gate for fans entering the stadium without any bags or stadium seats.
As in previous years, 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". Small clutches that do not exceed 4.5" by 6.5" are permitted. Stadium cushions are also not allowed, however, stadium seats and stadium pads that contain no pockets or zippers and are 18" wide or smaller are allowed.
