As fans prepare to come to Lambeau Field Sunday for the Packers-Giants Divisional playoff game, the Green Bay Packers today offered a few reminders.
Packers season-parking holders: Fans who are holders of Packers season-parking permits, both Green and Gold packages, are reminded to use their permit from the 2011 regular season. Parking for these clients is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Club-seat permit holders are reminded to use the playoff permit provided to them. Holders of each of these passes are also reminded that the $40 fee will be collected as they enter the lot.
Secondary ticket sources: The Packers and the Green Bay Police Department again remind fans to be wary when purchasing tickets from secondary and unofficial ticket sources. The Packers recommend fans utilize team partners Ticketmaster and Packer Fan Tours for purchasing tickets or ticket packages. Other ticket sources, according to the Wisconsin Bureau of Consumer Protection, should be members of the National Association of Ticket Brokers, as these businesses carefully screen ticket offers and take other measures to protect consumers from ticket fraud.
On gameday near the stadium, the best location to purchase tickets is on Armed Forces Drive near Oneida Street. Ticket sellers located there must be licensed to have a seller's permit and display that permit.
Enhanced screening: Game attendees should remember to give themselves extra time to enter the stadium and be prepared for the wintery temperatures. The enhanced screening process may take longer than usual with the carrying in of blankets and heavier clothing.
