Packers Family Night practice set for Aug. 5

Practice will be held inside Lambeau for 17th year

The Green Bay Packers announced Thursday that Packers Family Night will take place Aug. 5.

Now in its 17th year, Family Night serves as the introduction of the 2017 Green Bay Packers to a capacity crowd in Lambeau Field and on television to a statewide audience.

Doors for the event will open at 5:30 p.m., and the team will be introduced on the field at 7:30 p.m.

The format will once again be a full practice, which will include 11-on-11 sessions featuring live contact.

Family Night will benefit the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

The evening remains family-focused and will feature a gamelike atmosphere with use of the video boards, game day music and a fireworks show at the end of the night.

Tickets, priced at $10, will go on sale at 10 a.m. June 28. Fans can purchase their tickets through Ticketmaster over the phone at 800-745-3000 or via the internet at ticketmaster.com. Tickets also can be purchased at the Packers’ ticket office in person. There will be a limit of 10 tickets per purchase during the first day of ticket sales. All individuals, regardless of age, require a ticket for admittance.

A group ticket program (minimum of 50 tickets) will be offered. The application form is available online at www.packers.com, in person at the Packers ticket office or can be requested to be sent by calling 920-569-7501. Group ticket orders are restricted to approved groups and organizations and are to be used for the sole purpose of accommodating a group or organizational outing. Resale is prohibited.

Included in the evening’s activities will be the popular Chili’s “Jerseys Off Our Backs” promotion with Packers jerseys – all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed practice – to be given away in a random drawing.

In case of inclement weather, no refunds will be issued unless all stadium activities – from 5:30 p.m. until the end of the fireworks show – are canceled.

The entire training camp schedule is being finalized and will be released in the near future.
