Should the Green Bay Packers advance to Super Bowl XXXIX, the bulk of the ticket allotment, per usual practice, will be made available to season ticket holders, the team announced Monday.
Packers President Bob Harlan reiterated the organization's longstanding policy in addressing ticket allocations in the event that the Packers would capture the National Football Conference championship and the right to meet the American Football Conference champions in the Super Bowl at ALLTEL Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla., on Sunday, Feb. 6.
"Our season ticket holders repeatedly have demonstrated their loyalty with annual season-ticket sellouts in Lambeau Field since 1960, and because of that we want to make sure Super Bowl tickets are available to as many of them as possible," Harlan said.
"The allocation plan we have in place, we believe, is fair to all our season ticket holders," Harlan continued. "Each account - whether the Green package, Gold package, or club seat - had an equal chance in a random drawing for two Super Bowl tickets, regardless of the number of tickets in the account."
Under the team's allocation plan, tickets are being distributed as follows: Each season ticket account selected in the drawing is eligible for two tickets at $500 per ticket.
The drawing was conducted Thursday, Dec. 30, 2004, and monitored by the Green Bay accounting firm of Wipfli, LLP. Notification was sent to winners Monday, Jan. 3.
Under guidelines implemented by the National Football League, the number of available tickets and the names of the recipients selected through the random drawing are confidential.
