The Green Bay Packers announced today that there will be no fans in attendance at training camp practices, Packers Family Night and any home preseason games this season, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team said it is still hoping to have fans in the stands for regular season games.

“The tremendous support of cheering fans at Lambeau Field motivates all of us in the Packers organization,” said Packers president and chief executive officer Mark Murphy. “But after consulting with local health officials and reviewing League and CDC guidelines, we felt we needed to make this difficult decision. We will miss seeing so many of our fans, particularly the young ones, during this exciting time of year. We will continue to work on the protocols and logistics in the hope that we can welcome fans back to Lambeau Field for the regular season without jeopardizing the health of our players, team personnel and fans. We ask our fans to help us in this effort by wearing masks and staying six feet away from non-family members when out in the community in the coming weeks.”

Packers Family Night will still take place in Lambeau Field and will be televised to a statewide audience. The date and time of the event is still being finalized.

Plans for regular season ticket holder attendance are being finalized with details to be communicated in the near future, the Packers said. Season ticket holders have the option to “opt in” or “opt out” on the chance to reserve tickets this season. New policies and safety measures will be implemented for the games, the team said.
