Back in April, the Green Bay Packers and PackersEverywhere.com, the official fan home of the Green Bay Packers, announced a unique fan contest in which fans were given the chance to appear on a game day ticket.
Fans were encouraged to submit a picture to the website, then a panel selected the top five photos, and fans picked the winner. According to packerseverywhere.com, over 8000 photos were submitted and 16,000 votes cast.
The fans have spoken, and the winner is Emily Sperduto of Oxford, N.J. Her face will appear on over 80,000 tickets for the December 22nd home game against the Steelers. The family also won airfare, lodging and game day tickets for the game.
Her father, Tom, entered her in the contest and called the opportunity for Emily to be on a ticket a dream come true.
“I get emotional thinking about the memories that will come from this trip….I feel like we will be part of the team by having her face represent the Packers on that ticket. It’s a pretty awesome feeling.”
