The Green Bay Packers announced yesterday that Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health, will take place Friday evening, Aug. 3.
Now in its 12th year, Family Night features an intra-squad scrimmage between the Packers’ offense and defense. Evening activities get underway in the stadium at 5:30 p.m., followed by on-field football drills at 6:30 and the scrimmage at approximately 7:30.
Tickets, priced at $10, will go on sale June 25 at 9 a.m. and be available through Ticketmaster and may be purchased in person, over the phone or via the Internet. Tickets also can be purchased at the Packers’ ticket office in person. There is no ticket limit on purchases. All individuals, regardless of age, require a ticket for admittance.
A group ticket program (minimum of 50 tickets) will be offered again. The application form is available online at www.packers.com, in person at the Packers’ ticket office or can be requested to be faxed by calling (920) 569-7501. Group ticket orders are restricted to approved groups and organizations, and are to be used for the sole purpose of accommodating a group or organizational outing. Resale is prohibited.
Included in the evening’s activities will be the “Jerseys Off Our Backs” promotion with approximately 20 jerseys - all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed scrimmage - to be given away in a random drawing.
The evening will feature special activities for the younger fans, including sidewalk chalk and face painting. A spectacular fireworks show will conclude the night.
Parking for the event is $5.
In case of inclement weather, no refunds will be issued unless all stadium activities - from 5:30 p.m. until the end of the fireworks show - are cancelled.
For fans not attending the event, WLUK-TV FOX 11 again will originate a statewide telecast.
The entire training camp schedule is being finalized and will be released in the near future.
