In keeping practice with prior playoff appearances, the Green Bay Packers on Tuesday announced details of its ticket allotment plan for a possible appearance in Super Bowl XLVII. The bulk of the allotment, per custom, will be made available to season-ticket holders.
Under the plan, 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. Should the team advance, tickets will be distributed as follows: Each season-ticket account selected in the drawing is eligible to purchase two tickets at $850 per ticket.
The drawing was conducted Friday, Jan. 4, 2013. Notification was sent to winners this week. Payment must be received by 5 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 17, in the Packers' ticket office at Lambeau Field.
The Super Bowl is set for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday, Feb. 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.
