Empty seats aren’t a common sight at Lambeau Field, but the team isn’t sold out for Sunday’s playoff opener with the 49ers.
On Monday night, the Packers said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, they had about 15,000 tickets remaining for the game and Vic Ketchman of the team’s website was pushing fans to help keep the 49ers red out of the stands in a Q and A on Tuesday morning.
The glut of tickets is due in large part to the uncertainty about the team’s playoff chances while Aaron Rodgers was out. Season ticket holders passed on the opportunity to secure their seats, leaving plenty of them for the general public. The weather could be an issue for some people as the temperatures are supposed to be in the teens for the game, but that hasn’t kept fans from filling Lambeau for playoff games in the past.
That history would lead you to believe that the tickets will move between now and gameday, but there are still lower bowl tickets available online as of noon E.T. on Tuesday.
