Although next weekend's home opener will certainly be different than most years, the Green Bay Packers are still celebrating the return of football to Lambeau Field with a special Kickoff Weekend Show presented by SiriusXM, Ticketmaster and U.S. Cellular.
The debut one-of-a-kind variety show will air Saturday, Sept. 19, on Packers TV Network affiliate stations and streaming for fans all over the world on packers.com. The show will be streamed live on packers.com at 7 p.m. CT and will air later in the evening on certain Packers TV Network affiliate stations. Fans can check their local listings or visit packers.com/kickoffweekend to learn what time the show will air in their market.
The show will be hosted by ESPN anchor and Packers fan John Anderson and will be highlighted by a slate of Packers players and alumni, celebrity Packers fans, special interviews and a musical performance.
Currently scheduled to appear on the show are Brett Favre, Mark Chmura and Frank Winters, as well as Aaron Jones, Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith. Celebrity Packers fans Larry the Cable Guy and Lil Wayne will also be featured, as well as a special musical performance from Barns Courtney.
The Kickoff Weekend Show will take the place in lieu of the Kickoff Weekend festivities that have taken place in recent years prior to the Lambeau Field home opener.
The Packers are also offering a special 2020 Kickoff Weekend Sweepstakes, with one lucky winner receiving an autographed Brett Favre football, $200 Pro Shop gift card and a variety of Packers items to help fans enjoy the 2020 season at home in style.
