GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packers will allow roughly 6,000 season ticket holders and invited guests into Lambeau Field for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, the organization announced Thursday.

According to a news release, season ticket holders who opted in last summer for the opportunity to purchase tickets will receive more information this week via email. Frontline health care workers and first responders will also be invited to attend the game.

“Our players have enjoyed the energy provided by the limited fans we’ve had over the past four games. We’re looking forward to welcoming our Season Ticket Holders to add to that atmosphere in the playoffs,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We’ve seen our COVID-19 protocols in action and are confident we can safely add additional fans.”

Tickets are set to go on sale exclusively through Ticketmaster on Tuesday after the NFL announces the date and time of the divisional matchup. Prices will range from $127 to $177 in addition to a service fee from Ticketmaster. No tickets will be sold through the Packers’ ticket office.

Seating in Lambeau will be arranged in socially distanced pods of two, four and six tickets.

“We have continued to work closely with the Packers to ensure that they are taking all the necessary precautions to host ticketed fans at next weekend’s game,” said Dr. Michael Landrum, infectious disease specialist with Bellin Health. “The regular-season games have demonstrated the precautions in place will prevent further spread of the virus and we hope this will continue to demonstrate that while we may have to make adjustments to coexist with the virus, it is possible to make the necessary changes that will allow us to stop the spread as a community.”
