Packers playoff tickets picture fuzzy
Team prepares for possible postseason
By Tony Walter • firstname.lastname@example.org • November 30, 2010
Playoff game decisions facing many Green Bay Packers season-ticket holders are a little more complicated this year.
But, with home playoff games an uncertainty and a 2011 season at the mercy of labor negotiations, the Packers are conducting their ticket business as usual.
The deadline for ticket holders to pay for any home playoff games is 5 p.m. Dec. 7. And, as in the past, if there aren’t two games at Lambeau Field, fans have the option of getting a refund check or of having their money applied to their 2011 regular-season tickets.
Invoices for the 2011 regular-season will go out in February.
According to Ticket Director Mark Wagner, approximately half of the ticket holders want a refund check and half decide to pay it forward. If the 2011 season is eventually canceled because of failed labor negotiations, the Packers will communicate with ticket holders, team spokesman Aaron Popkey said.
“We’ve had a few people ask about that, but we’re proceeding on the assumption that there will be a settlement,” Popkey said.
The Packers wouldn’t qualify for the playoffs based on the current record, but there are five regular-season games remaining, and there is a chance the team could host as many as two games despite the loss on Sunday to the Atlanta Falcons.
One Wild Card game ticket in the stadium bowl costs $111. A Divisional Playoff game ticket costs $124, and an NFC Championship game ticket costs $166, all prices set by the league.
When all the Green package orders have been filled, the Gold package requests — former Milwaukee season-ticket holders — will be filled on a random basis until all the tickets are sold. Tickets would be mailed out in late December.
Joe Conway, an Allouez native living in Milwaukee, is going to pay for his tickets.
“If we do host a home game, some tickets will be sold to friends and family, thus getting most of next year’s season ticket money back,” Conway said.
