TICKET DRAWING APPLICATION PROCESS OPENS TODAY
Packers Fan Fest, the popular event which gathers Packers fans with their favorite past and present players, is scheduled for March 7-8 in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
The fourth annual event again includes a Friday Fan Fest kickoff event, autograph sessions and a tour through the team's locker room.
On March 7, doors will open at 3 p.m., with a kickoff event at 4 p.m. and programming until 9:30 p.m. On March 8, Fan Fest doors will open at 8 a.m., with programming from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
A total of 3,500 tickets will be available. Priced at $85 per person for the two-day event, tickets will be distributed via a random drawing to allow all fans an equal chance to obtain them. Fans interested in entering the drawing are required to submit an application with payment, a process that can be completed online. A $4 per order handling fee will apply. Fans without internet access can obtain an application from the Packers' ticket office, either in person or by calling 920/569-7501.
Entries will be limited to one per household with winners allowed to purchase a maximum of six tickets. The application process begins today, Jan. 7, and ends Jan. 23, with online, in-person and faxed entries due by 5 p.m. Mailed entries must be postmarked by Jan. 23.
Selected applicants will have their payments processed and tickets mailed by Feb. 11; no refunds will be offered for those selected. Applicants not selected will have a notification letter and returned payment mailed by Feb. 11.
Interested ticket buyers can apply any time during the Jan. 7-23 window -- an early entry does not increase the chance of selection. Applying for tickets does not guarantee receiving tickets. Odds of being selected are dependent on the number of applications submitted.
The ticket includes, in addition to entrance to the two-day event, admission to the Packers Hall of Fame and a tour through the Packers locker room. Children 3-and-under enter free and do not require a ticket. Parking for the event is free.
Fan Fest presenting sponsors are Chevrolet and Goodwill Industries. Other sponsors include the Wingate Inn, The Ground Round, Citgo and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Further details, including player appearances, will be announced in the coming weeks.
