The low rows offer a unique view of the players and feel for the violence of the game, especially when the action is right in front of you. The first 3 rows of the end zone are considered the “Lambeau Leap” area, where a Packers player may end up jumping into the stands after scoring a touchdown. The middle and upper rows provide more perspective on the entire game, including pass patterns. The Packers benches are located on the even-numbered sideline sections of the field. Tickets on the Packers sidelines in low to middle rows are the highest prices seats.
Handicapped seats are available on a season ticket basis from the Green Bay Packers (920-569-7501). If you have difficulty walking up and down stairs, purchase tickets near row 23, where you enter the stadium from the concourse area. Concessions are available in both the 100 and 300 levels of the “bowl” seating. There is free access between the 100 and 300 levels. Thus, if you are in row 55 of the 100 level, you can walk up 5 rows to the 300 level concessions.
Whenever possible, order Packers tickets by exact location – section, row and seat numbers. This will guarantee you the seat location and grouping you require. Some brokers sell seats by “general” location. Expect to receive tickets that meet the minimum requirements of the location and rows advertised. At the time of purchase, ALWAYS verify the location, delivery date and total price of the tickets ordered. The Green Bay Packers distribute tickets to season ticket holders in late July. No broker can provide you with actual tickets before that date. After August 1, any tickets ordered by exact location should be available immediately. Make sure the price quoted includes all service charges and delivery fees. Many brokers and online auctions add significant service fees to the ticket prices. Find a local Green Bay broker that does not add service fees. Unless you know the broker, ALWAYS pay by credit card. If you don’t receive the tickets you will receive a full refund from the credit card company. Order Green Bay Packers tickets for all 2015 home and road games NOW!
Green Bay is known for its tailgate parties. With the exception of the game, it is the single most important event of the weekend. There is nothing quite like arriving on game day to the smell of grilled brats and the sound of music in the stadium area. There are many "organized" tailgate parties in the stadium area. Most will provide grilled brats, burgers, salads, beer, soda and entertainment. Most of all you will enjoy the camaraderie of fellow Packers fans. Other parties will be all-inclusive, meaning you can eat and drink all you want for one price. Some parties will allow you to purchase items on an individual basis. To enhance your experience, make sure that the party is located in an area that has a full view of historic Lambeau Field. It doesn't make sense to be stuck behind some building or blocks away from the stadium. In Green Bay, there is always a chance of inclement or cold weather. Parties with indoor access will allow you to escape the weather and enjoy the tailgate experience. You can save the bravado for the game. Lastly, attend a party that is not too crowded and allows customers to enter before the start time. This will help avoid long lines to enter.

Hotel rooms can be as hard to find as Packers tickets for some games. Many hotels are sold out to groups and regular guests immediately upon release of the NFL schedule in April. The majority of hotels, especially those in the stadium area, require a minimum 2-night stay for Packers weekends. On occasion, the policy is not enforced for exhibition and late season games. The hotels that do allow a one night stay are typically located outside the stadium area. Be sure to understand the services offered by the hotel. If you are flying into Green Bay, ask if the hotel provides complimentary roundtrip airport transfers. If you don't have a car, you may also want to stay at a hotel that is within walking distance of area shops, restaurants and bars. Some hotels also offer a complimentary breakfast each morning. Currently, all hotels in Green Bay provide free parking. If you can't find a hotel room in Green Bay, check in Appleton and Manitowoc for availability.
