The Green Bay Packers this week are sending invoices to Brown County residents who have been selected to purchase tickets to a 2019 Packers game.
The Brown County Ticket Drawing program is open to adults residing in Brown County who are not current season ticket holders. Fans registered for the program that are selected in the drawing are eligible to purchase four tickets at face value to one randomly selected Packers game at Lambeau Field.
Registrations for the program are accepted year-round, and new Brown County residents or those who have not signed up for the program in the past are encouraged to sign up by visiting the Packers ticket office, Lambeau Field Atrium guest services desk or Packers Pro Shop and presenting a photo ID, as well as a second item to verify residency such as a utility bill or bank statement. For more information about how the program and ticket drawing works, please visit packers.com/tickets/brown-county.
All invoices sent to those selected this year will reflect regular-season pricing for seats, with each ticket priced at $111. Invoices are due by April 8, 2019, and those who pay for tickets will be notified about which game tickets they will receive in June. Those selected for a preseason game will receive a refund of the difference between the regular-season price and the preseason price. To expedite the refund, fans are encouraged to pay the invoice with a credit card.
Starting this year, Brown County Tickets will only be available as Mobile Tickets, which offer a safe, convenient and flexible way for fans to manage their tickets and improve protection against fraud. With mobile ticketing, the ticket holders access their tickets from their smartphones, and the ticket's information is scanned at the gate for entry, allowing phones to serve as a replacement for paper tickets.
Residents selected to purchase tickets this year will receive Mobile Ticketing instructions along with their invoices, and they will be instructed to make sure their email account is registered with the Packers in order to receive their tickets in late July. More information about how Mobile Ticketing works is available at packers.com/tickets/how-to-manage-tickets-online, which is intended as a guide for all ticket holders and prospective ticket buyers. Please note: unlike regular season tickets, Brown County tickets are unable to be posted for resale on the secondary marketplace.
As was the case during recent seasons, if a 2018-selected resident who received tickets for a preseason game was selected again to be able to purchase tickets in 2019, they will be guaranteed tickets to a regular-season contest.
Residents may pay for their tickets online via Packers.com. Instructions for the online payment method also were sent to residents with the ticket invoices. Invoices also can be dropped off at the Packers ticket office at Lambeau Field from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Additionally, this season the Packers have reduced the number of tickets used for the program from 3,000 to 2,500 per game (25,000 per season). This adjustment was made to reflect the decreased demand in recent years, as many registered Brown County residents have opted not to purchase tickets through the program when selected in the drawing. Tickets removed from the Brown County resident program will now be used for both Green and Gold package season tickets. The season ticket waiting list currently stands at 139,000 names.
