The 14th annual Packers Family Night to be held on Saturday Aug. 2 will be a departure from previous editions and not include a scrimmage, the organization announced on Thursday.
Taking place at Lambeau Field during training camp, this year's event will be a full practice that will include 11-on-11 sessions with live contact but no full tackling.
"It was determined a full practice is necessary to accomplish its preparation goals for the regular season," the Packers said in a release.
Tickets, priced at $10, will go on sale June 23 at 9 a.m. CST. Fans can purchase their tickets through Ticketmaster, over the phone or via the internet. Tickets also can be purchased at the Packers’ ticket office in person. There is no ticket limit on purchases. All individuals, regardless of age, require a ticket for admittance.
The event will benefit the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program.
As usual, Family Night will be televised. WLUK-TV FOX 11 again will originate a statewide telecast. In addition to Green Bay, it will appear on WITI-TV in Milwaukee, WMSN-TV in Madison, WFXS-TV in Wausau, WLAX-TV in La Crosse and WEUX-TV in Eau Claire.
In-stadium activities begin at 5:30 p.m. and will include fireworks, a "Jerseys Off Our Backs" promotion, and a gameday atmosphere with use of video boards and music.
Parking will cost $5. A group ticket packages are being offered with an application available at the Packers official website.
The Packers also said the entire training camp schedule is being finalized and will be released in the near future.
