GREEN BAY, Wis. — After barring ticketed fans from Lambeau Field for the regular season, things could change for Green Bay’s upcoming playoff game next weekend.
According to ESPN Wisconsin’s Jason Wilde, the team will welcome up to 6,000 fans for the divisional round playoff game.

The Packers did allow gameday attendance for team employees and members of their families in December.
They also extended the invite to 250 frontline healthcare workers late in the season.
“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 and CEO Mark Murphy in a statement. “We’ve seen our COVID-19 protocols in action and are confident we can safely add additional fans.”
