Following today's approval from NFL clubs at a virtual league meeting, the enhanced NFL season schedule which will feature each team playing 17 regular-season games and three preseason games will go into effect in 2021.
The new scheduling format will see each team host 10 games overall – either nine regular-season games and one preseason game or eight regular-season games and two preseason games.
Moving to 17 regular-season games will provide fans an extra week of regular-season NFL action, with the additional matchup featuring teams from opposing conferences that finished in the same place within their division in the previous season. The AFC was determined to host the additional game in 2021, and with the NFC North matching up with the AFC West, the Packers will face the Kansas City Chiefs this coming season in Kansas City.
Because Lambeau Field will not host an additional game this season, both Gold and Green package Season Ticket Holders will receive their regular allotment of games this year. While Green package invoices are not affected, Gold package invoices will be updated accordingly on ticket holders' online accounts to reflect that no additional game will take place at Lambeau Field this year.
Gold package Season Ticket Holders who have already paid their invoices for this season will soon receive a refund of the difference between the cost of the regular-season and preseason game. Those who haven't yet paid their invoices will be able to pay the updated invoice on their online account. Any Gold package Season Ticket Holder who received the invoice in the mail and was planning to mail in their payment can pay the adjusted amount due: end zone seats are $58 for preseason, $118 for regular season; south end zone, 700 Level are $61 for preseason, $121 for regular season; south end zone, 600 Level are $64 for preseason, $129 for regular season; end zone to the 20-yard line are $69 for preseason, $134 for regular season; between the 20-yard lines are $74 for preseason, $149 for regular season. Additionally, updated invoices will be mailed to Gold package Season Ticket Holders who have not yet paid their invoices.
The official 2021 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced later this spring. With the additional regular-season game, Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles will take place on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022.
Additionally, with the new 17-game format, the NFL is expanding their efforts to grow the game internationally, and the Packers will be a part of this effort. The process of scheduling teams to play games internationally has now been formalized and starting in 2022, the Packers will be included in the regular rotation to play internationally, which will focus initially on Canada, Europe, Mexico, South America and the United Kingdom.
While the Packers will not be required to give up one of the traditional eight regular season home games hosted at Lambeau Field, a Packers-hosted game may be played at an international site in years when the NFC hosts nine home games. This would only occur once every eight years; the Packers would play eight regular-season home games and one preseason game at Lambeau Field, and one regular-season game at a neutral, international site. The Packers may play additional international games as the visiting team.
Lambeau Field premium seat ticket prices are set per client contracts. Those who have any questions regarding their contract can call (920) 569-7260.
