The Green Bay Packers asked for and were granted an extension to finish selling tickets to the Wildcard Playoff game scheduled to be played at Lambeau Field Sunday afternoon – so there’s still plenty of time to make the call for these once-in-a-lifetime tickets.
Playing the first round of the playoffs at home against the San Francisco 49ers, the Packers will be defending its turf once again – this time it will literally be the “frozen tundra” as temperatures are projected to be hovering around -3 to -5 degrees and dropping fast at game time. Wind chills are expected to be around -30 degrees.
As of late Thursday afternoon, there were about 3,000 tickets still remaining to be sold for the 3:40 p.m. kickoff. That’s all that remained of the 40,000 tickets made available to Packers fans at the beginning of the week.
So, get your long johns laid out, buy your hand warmers and find your warmest hat and get on out to Lambeau for this weekend’s game.
