Roughly 6,000 Packers fans will finally be able to watch a game in person at Lambeau Field this COVID-altered NFL season.
Brenda Krainik, Director of Marketing & Communications at Greater Green Bay Convention & Visitors Bureau, tells WTMJ Green Bay has had a different feel this year.
“It’s been kind of bleak here. We normally see about a $15 million economic impact for each game. No fans in the stands really does terrible things to the local businesses, attractions, restaurants, hotels. It really ripples through the community.”
So the community is safely preparing to welcome fans again. Krainik says local bars and restaurants have been gearing up all week.
“We’re ready to welcome the fans who are coming in. We wish it was a bigger number, but we will take what we can get.”
