Thursday marks the completion of the recent $146 million renovation project at Lambeau Field and its opening to the public.
The Green Bay Packers will hold an open house for new season ticket holders in the south end zone where approximately 7,000 new seats have been added to the stadium. The event has been dubbed as “Meet Your Seat.”
In addition to the new seating, new features at the stadium also include the ShopKo gate, new video boards, sound system, viewing platforms, suites and 30 new concession stands.
According to the Packers official website:
The event will run from 2-8 p.m. and will be self-guided, allowing ticket holders the opportunity to explore the newest stadium expansion at their own pace. Invitations have been mailed out to seat holders in the new south end zone, who will receive a map of the areas open for viewing upon their arrival.
Seat holders will have an opportunity to get a photo of themselves with a view of the stadium in the background, and some concession stands in the south end zone will be open, with special pricing for the event. The video boards will be showing the 2012 Packers highlight film on the hour, every hour, beginning at 3 p.m.
An Associated Press report says the Packers will be having a ribbon-cutting ceremony as well, at which team president Mark Murphy and Wisconsin governor Scott Walker will speak.
Taking place out in Stateline, Nev. on Thursday is the American Century Celebrity-Am as part of the American Century Classic golf tournament starting at 7:00 a.m. local time at the Edgewood Tahoe golf course.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and linebacker A.J. Hawk have been invited to the event.
And back in Wisconsin, the official youth football camps of the Green Bay Packers continue in their Green Bay and Glendale locations on Thursday. More information is at ProSportsExperience.com.
