Packers fans are invited to bring the Green Bay essence to Atlanta early with a free Packers Everywhere Pep Rally on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. EST, with doors opening to the public at 6 p.m. The festivities will take place at Stats, a restaurant and sports bar in the Luckie Marietta District, Atlanta, located at 300 Marietta St. NW.
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy will take part in the pre-gameday excitement to greet fans and in a Q&A session with Wayne Larrivee. Packers alumni Antonio Freeman, Grady Jackson, William Henderson and Perry Kemp will also be at the rally to socialize with fans, sign autographs and discuss their thoughts on the next day's game against the Falcons.
"We're excited to visit with fans for an away game. It's free to the public and it's a chance for fans to visit with alumni and Mark Murphy. It also is a chance for fans to visit one of over 1,400 official Packers Everywhere establishments," said Joan Malcheski, director of Packers Media Group. "Our hope is to have additional rallies at other away-game cities."
In addition to the Packers personalities on hand, Johnsonville Brats, Sargento Cheese, and Miller beverages will be offered to give an even greater Wisconsin feel to the event. A variety of Packers raffle prizes will be given out, including Packers merchandise and Packers Pro Shop gift cards.
