It's that time of year again! You know, the time of year when you look at the 2011 Green Bay Packers schedule and purchase your Green Bay Packers tickets for the season. When looking at the schedule, you'll notice that three of the games have the phrase "gold package" next to them. You may have heard Green Bay Packers season ticket holders talk about either the "green package" or the gold package," but what exactly does that mean? I'm glad you asked.
Green Package vs. Gold PackageUp until 1994, the Green Bay Packers played three games a year at County Stadium in Milwaukee. The rest of their games were played at Lambeau Field. The games played at County Stadium were a part of the "gold package." Gold package season ticket holders had tickets to all of the games at County Stadium. All games played at Lambeau Field were a part of the "green package." Now that the Green Bay Packers only play at Lambeau Field, they have alotted 3 games a year to "gold package" season ticket holders. The rest of the games at Lambeau Field belong to the "green package." This year's "gold package" games include:
- Friday, August 19th vs. Arizona Cardinals, 7 PM
- Sunday, October 2nd vs. Denver Broncos, 3:15 PM
- Sunday, November 20th vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 12 PM
