Imagine walking through the tunnel that leads to the playing field at historic Lambeau Field, the same tunnel that leads Brett Favre, Donald Driver and Darren Sharper to their workplace on Sunday.
It's certainly a dream that very few have been able to experience...until now.
The tunnel at the southeast corner of Lambeau Field is just one of the many highlights of the Lambeau Field Stadium Tours, which resume Monday, October 20, 2003.
"We're very excited to bring back the popular stadium tours and show off the new look of Lambeau Field," said Packers President and CEO Bob Harlan. "We think fans will be impressed with what they see. It's really more than a tour, it's a living history of the most storied venue in professional football."
Each one-hour tour will begin in Harlan Plaza at the statues of Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi. Tour guides will lead fans through the all-new Atrium, up to the Club Level for an exclusive look at the private boxes, club seats and the Legends Club, visit the upgraded concourse and check out the hallowed turf of football's most famous gridiron.
"The stadium tours were put on hold through the construction process and we had to turn away a lot of people who wanted to see the field," said John Jones, Packers Executive Vice President and COO. "Now they can see the beautiful Atrium and everything it has to offer, plus get a look at several areas of the stadium they might not normally see."
Lambeau Field Stadium Tours will be offered 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on non-game days, but may vary daily depending on events and activities at the stadium.
Fans are encouraged to call ahead to (920) 496-5700 to verify the tour schedule.
The cost of the stadium tour is $8 for adults; $7 for seniors; $5 for children ages 6-11; and free for children 5 and under.
Tickets are available in the Atrium, between the entrance to the Packers Hall of Fame and the staircase to Curly's Pub. During the off-season, tickets will be sold in the Hall of Fame.
