On Tuesday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers announced the date and time of their annual Shareholders Meeting for 2016. The event will take place on Thursday, July 21, at 11:00 AM Central time.
As it is every year, the meeting is held just before the beginning of the Packers' summer training camp. However, this year that date is one week earlier. This is because the Packers start camp a week earlier due to their selection as one of the participating teams in the Hall of Fame Game, which will be held on Sunday, August 7th. Teams typically begin camp approximately two weeks prior to their first preseason game, but the Packers (and their opponent, the Indianapolis Colts) get to start early this year due to having a fifth game in August.
The Shareholders Meeting will as always be held in the seating bowl at Lambeau Field to ensure that all shareholders and families in attendance can participate. The team also announced that each shareholder will have the opportunity to obtain four tickets, either electronically or through standard mail.
