The Green Bay Packers announced that 'Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health,' will take place Friday evening, Aug. 2. Now in its 19th year, 'Family Night' will serve as the introduction of the 2019 Green Bay Packers, in-person to a capacity crowd in Lambeau Field and on television to a state-wide audience.
Doors for the event will open at 5:30 p.m., and the team will be introduced on the field at 7:30 p.m.
The format of this year's Family Night will once again be a full practice, in order for the team to accomplish its preparation goals for the regular season.
The evening remains family-focused and will feature a game-like atmosphere with use of the video boards featuring promotions by Fleet Farm and Oshkosh Corporation, as well as gameday music and a fireworks show at the end of the night. Family Night is a part of the Back to Football campaign, presented by Bellin Health. Other components of the campaign include Packers training camp and Packers preseason games.
Tickets, priced at $10, will go on sale Tuesday, July 2, at 10 a.m. CT. Fans can purchase their tickets through Ticketmaster at Ticketmaster.com. Tickets also can be purchased at the Packers' ticket office in person. There will be a limit of 10 tickets per purchase during the first day of ticket sales. All individuals, regardless of age, require a ticket for admittance.
A group ticket program (minimum of 50 tickets) will be offered again. The application form is available online at pckrs.com/2019familynightgroup, in person at the Packers ticket office or can be requested to be sent by calling (920) 569-7501. Group ticket orders are restricted to approved groups and organizations, and are to be used for the sole purpose of accommodating a group or organizational outing. Resale is prohibited.
Included in the evening's activities will be the popular "Jerseys Off Our Backs" promotion with Packers jerseys – all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed practice – to be given away in a random drawing.
The spectacular Family Night Fireworks and Laser Show will conclude the night.
Parking for the event will be $5, with net proceeds to benefit "Meijer Simply Give," which raises money for hunger-related causes.
In case of inclement weather, no refunds will be issued unless all stadium activities – from 5:30 p.m. until the end of the fireworks show – are canceled.
For fans not attending the event, a statewide telecast will be available on Packers TV Network stations, including TODAY'S TMJ4 in Milwaukee, NBC26 in Green Bay, WKOW-TV in Madison, WXOW-TV in La Crosse, WQOW-TV in Eau Claire, WAOW-TV in Wausau, KQDS-TV in Duluth-Superior, WLUC-TV in Escanaba-Marquette.
