Packers Calendar: Preseason Schedule Released Thursday

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the NFL will release its preseason schedule on Thursday.

The regular season schedule is presumed to be released on Tuesday April 16.

As usual, the Packers will play two home and two away games during the preseason.

Included in the "gold package" or Milwauakee season-ticket holders will be the 64th annual Upper Midwest Shrine Game. And as part of the "green package" will be the 53rd annual Bishop's Charities Game.

Typically, exact dates are not initially announced with the release of the NFL's preseason schedule except for those appearing on national television. The NFL will indicate Week 1, Week 2, etc., with precise dates and times announced later.

Can someone explain to me if there are plans to continue the gold package indefinitely? I understand its purpose, but it's impossible to get season tickets for all 8 home game sunless you're from GB and your family has both a green and a gold package.

There has been no talk that I've heard of discontinuing the gold package, and I don't know why they would. I don't imagine there are a large amount of people looking to get all eight home games, and if there are, the avenue to do so would be becoming a "green package" ticket holder and try to get the remaining two tickets on the secondary market.

Brian,

I love ya but that is just crazy. There are about 60,000 people on a waiting list that would love to have all 8 home games. In my opinion the season ticket rules for our Packers need a complete overhaul so those who have waited for generations have a chance to be a season ticket holder.

Given the option of eight games or none at all, of course people would take the eight games, but there's already a large amount of tickets being sold on the secondary ticket market, a reason you see so many fans in away team jerseys. If fans had all eight games, that's likely only to increase. Show me a fan that attends every single home every season, and I'll show you ten that attend half and give the remaining to family members or sell them.

Giving to family members is a great thing and I encourage the season ticket holders I know to do so; when I'm not convincing them to give them to me. I guess what I'm getting at is that there seems to be very large, and increasing number, of away jerseys in the crowd. I really think that season ticket rules need to be overhauled completely. Maybe even implementing rules that those on the waiting list get first shot at a controlled aftermarket price.
