The Green Bay Packers PR department issued a press release today announcing a reminder that Sunday’s game time has been pushed back to 3:15 p.m. from the originally scheduled noon start.
But in addition to the announcement, there is so many other things happening prior to game time … everything from who is singing the National Anthem, to what branch of the U.S. Armed Services will be doing the flyover, to what former players will be honored during the team introductions.
FANS REMINDED OF SUNDAY’S GAME TIME CHANGE: 3:15 PM
Attendees Encouraged To Continue To Enter Early With Enhanced Screening
The Green Bay Packers today reminded fans that Sunday’s kickoff against the Oakland Raiders has been changed to 3:15 p.m. All of the game’s scheduled activities will still take place, but at adjusted times.
Fans must keep in mind that with the change in the weather, many people will have additional items, such as heavy coats and blankets, to keep warm. With the enhanced screening process, it is even more imperative that game attendees make their way to the stadium gates early to accommodate the extra time needed to enter. Fans are urged to continue to arrive early, enter the gate that is indicated on their tickets and plan ahead for the screening process.
Stadium gates open two hours prior to kickoff (1:15 p.m. this Sunday). To expedite the screening process, fans are encouraged to move items such as a cell phone or keys from your pocket to your hand before you are screened.
Fans are asked to drop off new, unwrapped toys at the stadium gates for this year’s Toys for Tots initiative. Additionally, U.S. Marines will be throughout the parking lot prior to gate openings to collect toys.
Upon entering Lambeau Field fans will receive a Best Buy coupon book.
The pre-game festivities will be featuring the Punt, Pass, & Kick competition participants. During this time, the contestants will be showing off their skills on Lambeau Field and those who have been chosen to compete nationally will be announced.
Also during pre-game, the Packers Women’s Association and Festival Foods will be presenting a check for $15,074.82 to Paul’s Pantry, from the efforts of their food drive that was held earlier this season where fans donated more than 27,400 food items.
The national anthem will be performed by country singer Josh Hoge, with a Navy VX9 flyover to follow.
Packers alumni Matt Brock and Darrell Thompson will be recognized prior to team introductions and will also be in the Packers Pro Shop on Saturday, Dec. 10 signing autographs from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Brock will be mingling with fans in the Tundra Tailgate Zone on gameday from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m. while Thompson is in the Legends Club for suite and club seat ticket holders.
