The Green Bay Packers are having a magical season.
Unfortunately the one thing that has dampened that magic has been the absence of fans at Lambeau Field thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic save for some recent games with employees, health care workers, and their families.
As the team prepares for their playoff run and a possible Super Bowl title, fans are coming back to witness history. The Packers announced on Thursday night that 6,000 tickets will be made available to season ticket holders who opted in prior to the season.
Social distancing guidelines will be enforced and face coverings will of course be mandated but with what January brings to Wisconsin, a lot of fans would probably still have their faces covered anyway in a normal year.
The 6,000 fans are in addition to the health care workers and employees, as well as an allotment of tickets for the opposing team as well.
Sadly, but smartly, tailgating will not be allowed at Lambeau Field either.
If you were hoping to get your hands on tickets, prepare to be disappointed. The Packers also announced tickets will be mobile and non-transferable. That means no resale is allowed.
It’s a baby step but at least this gives some fans a chance to see one of the great teams in Packers history in person. It would have been sad (but again, probably necessary) if no fans got to see a potential Super Bowl run.
Here’s hoping the vaccine rollout picks up pace and we can have full stadiums for all of the 2021 season.
