All tickets have been sold for Sunday’s NFC Wild Card Playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field, the Packers announced this morning.
If the game had not sold out today the television broadcast would have been blacked out in Green Bay, Wausau and Milwaukee.
In addition to fan sales, a group of Packers corporate partners, led by Green Bay-based Associated Bank, purchased the remaining available tickets today to ensure a sellout and TV broadcast of the game throughout Wisconsin, the team said.
“As a longtime partner with the Packers’ organization, we are honored to help ensure that fans can enjoy the full Packers playoff experience this Sunday, both at Lambeau Field in in their homes,” said Associated Banc-Corp President & CEO Philip B. Flynn.
Other corporate partners with a strong Wisconsin presence that purchased tickets are FOX TV affiliates WITI (Milwaukee), WLUK (Green Bay) and WFXS (Wausau); Mills Fleet Farm and Bellin Health.
“We’re very thankful to Packers fans, and our partners led by Associated Bank, for ensuring Sunday’s game will be sold out,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “A unique season and other factors contributed to having tickets available, but with the support of our fans and partners, we’re looking forward to a great atmosphere Sunday at Lambeau Field for the playoff game against the 49ers. We also know fans around the state will be able to enjoy the telecast.”
