As fans prepare to come to Lambeau Field Sunday afternoon for the Packers-Giants Wild Card playoff, the Green Bay Packers today offered a few reminders.
The Packers and Delaware North will be offering free hot chocolate, limited to two per customer, during Sunday's game to help fans battle the forecasted cold. The free hot chocolate will be available at each concession stand with hot chocolate on the menu, which is about 40 locations throughout the stadium.
Limited tickets for Sunday's game remain available and can be purchased through Ticketmaster online only. Ticket prices range from $118 to $145, depending on location.
To purchase, please visit www.packers.com/tickets/singlegametickets and click on the Ticketmaster link.
The Packers and law enforcement partners are asking fans to allow for extra time in making their way to the stadium gates, as the safety screening process may take longer, with fans dressed in heavier clothing for the cold. Game attendees should adhere to the NFL safety policy that has been in effect during the last few seasons. Blankets and unzipped sleeping bags may be carried into the stadium if they are carried loosely.
Game attendees with 2016 Green or Gold package parking passes in lots 1, 2, 5, and 10 will be accepted on a first come, first-served basis for the amount of spaces allocated; $40 cash will be required at the lot entrance. Limited parking is also available without a parking pass, with spaces available on a first come, first-served basis with a $40 cash fee to be collected at the lot entrances.
Club Seat parking pass holders with passes labeled P1 (playoff game 1) will be accepted in Lots 3 or 5 for a $40 fee at the lot entrance. Suite parking pass holders with passes in Lots 3 and 6 will be accepted with no fee. These pass holders are reminded to use the pass labeled P1 (playoff game 1).
Bellin Health is also providing tips to fans battling cold weather:
- Dress appropriately: Hypothermia and frostbite can occur even without subzero temperatures. Wear loose, dry layers, but don't overdress. Give yourself the opportunity to shed layers to adjust to weather changes. Try a mix of cotton or wool underneath, with something waterproof on top. Be sure to wear a hat and mittens, as well as comfortable, waterproof, insulated boots.
- Drink warm beverages, and as always, drink alcoholic beverages in moderation. Alcohol prevents the body from generating heat and can cause dehydration, which leaves one more susceptible to cold weather.
- In addition, watch for warning signs of hypothermia, such as severe shivering, dizziness, drowsiness and confusion. Learn the signs of frostbite and seek medical attention immediately if you notice grayish, white or yellowed skin, pain or numbness, or waxy skin.
