Ahead of Sunday’s home opener against the Detroit Lions, Packers fans are reminded that Lambeau Field will be closed to the public on Sunday, including the stadium’s parking lots and all Atrium attractions including Packers Pro Shop, Packers Hall of Fame and 1919 Kitchen and Tap.
The Lambeau Field Atrium will remain open on Saturday for regular hours, and Packers alumni Pat Lee, Jarrett Bush and Andrew Quarless will be signing autographs from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday outside of the Atrium near the Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi statues on the northeast side of the stadium. Autograph-seekers are asked not to bring their own items to be autographed, as alumni photos will be provided free of charge, and fans are asked to follow proper social distancing protocols while waiting in line.
The Packers alumni will also be present at the 32nd annual Green & Gold Gala to benefit Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin, which is taking place virtually this year and is free for fans to view online on Friday, Sept. 18. Fans who want to take part can also purchase raffle tickets at a raffle drive thru at Lambeau Field parking Lot 1 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday.

Titletown and its businesses will remain open on Saturday and Sunday, including the public park spaces, The Turn and 46 Below, but no formal team-run gameday activities will take place. Other Titletown businesses may host activities on gameday and fans are asked to inquire with individual businesses for more information.
Fans also are reminded to tune into the special Kickoff Weekend Show presented by SiriusXM, Ticketmaster and U.S. Cellular. The debut one-of-a-kind variety show will air Saturday, Sept. 19, on Packers TV Network affiliate stations and streaming for fans all over the world on packers.com. The show will be streamed live on packers.com at 7 p.m. CT and will air later in the evening on certain Packers TV Network affiliate stations. Fans can check their local listings or visit packers.com/kickoffweekend to learn what time the show will air in their market.
The show will be hosted by ESPN anchor and Green Bay native John Anderson and will be highlighted by a slate of Packers players and alumni, celebrity Packers fans, special interviews and a musical performance. Currently scheduled to appear on the show are Brett Favre, Mark Chmura and Frank Winters, as well as Aaron Jones, Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith. Celebrity Packers fans Lil Wayne and Brian Baumgartner will also be featured, as well as a special musical performance from Barns Courtney.
The team remains hopeful that Lambeau Field will be able to host fans for games later in the season at a significantly reduced capacity, with a variety of precautions and protocols in place. All NFL-required protocols are subject to change and may be updated on a game-by-game basis as conditions dictate. As always, the health and wellbeing of the community, players, fans, personnel and staff are the highest priority. The Packers are planning to make necessary adjustments in order to conduct games in as safe a manner as possible. All preparations are being made with the most current advice of medical and public health officials and are subject to change.
