In keeping with past practice, the Green Bay Packers have mailed playoff ticket invoices to season ticket holders this week in preparation for a possible home playoff game (or games) at Lambeau Field.
Ticket prices have been set by the NFL for the playoffs and are based on the respective prices for general seating in Lambeau Field. A seat that was $77 will be $84 for a Wild Card game, $111 for a Divisional Playoff and $178 for the NFC Championship. An $85 seat will be $90, $118 and $185, respectively. An $88 seat will be $95, $123 and $194, respectively. A $92 seat will be $98, $127 and $197, respectively, and a $100 seat will be $108, $138, and $219, respectively.
Invoices sent reflect the price of the tickets for the best possible playoff scenario: a Divisional Playoff and NFC Championship game.
Ticket holders again will have the ability to pay with a credit card (Visa or MasterCard) when paying through the My Packers Account system on Packers.com. To use credit cards to purchase playoff tickets, payment must be made online.
New this year is the 'Pay As We Play' payment option, which allows ticket holders to schedule credit card payments to be processed once home playoff games are confirmed. Ticket holders must sign up through their packers.com online account by the due date listed on the invoice.
For those that choose to pay in full, tickets for the Divisional Playoff and NFC Championship games must be purchased as a package by the due date listed on the invoice online with a credit card. Tickets can also be purchased by mail with check or in person with cash, check or money order.
In the event one or both games are not played at Lambeau Field, or a Wild Card game is played instead of the Divisional Playoff, the remaining credit balance will be automatically applied to 2015 season invoices, which will be sent in early February. If a ticket holder prefers a refund versus a credit toward next season's tickets, he or she is asked to send a written request to the ticket office by the due date listed on the invoice.
'Green' package ticket holders, per regular custom, have been invoiced for the same seats they hold during the regular season.
Any seats not claimed by 'Green' package ticket holders will be randomly allocated to 'Gold' package ticket holders, who have been invoiced for the same number of seats (up to four) they hold during the regular season.
Club seat and suite holders have been invoiced as well, with pricing also set by the NFL. Per contract, premium seat holders must purchase all their invoiced tickets.
Full details are included in the mailings. Payment must be received by 5 p.m., Dec. 3, either online or at the Packers' ticket office. Playoff tickets will be mailed to ticket holders in late December.
