(WFRV) – Packers season ticket holders were sent a questionnaire asking whether they intend to opt-in or out for this season due to the pandemic.

According to the release by the team, they remain optimistic that fans will be allowed to attend games at Lambeau Field this season. They are also aware that there is no guarantee at this time, either.

In addition to the opt-in/out question, they also asks season ticket holders if they’d like their payment for the 2020 season refunded to them in full or have it applied to the 2021 season.

Fans have until July 31st to submit their responses to the Packers.

After the Packers receive those questionnaires, they will be able to finalize safety protocols and expectations for initial games. From there season ticket holders who “opt-in” will get information about a presale opportunity for them to purchase single game tickets.

Due to a limited number of seats per game there is no guarantee season ticket holders will get the same seats or the same number of seats either.

The gameday feel at Lambeau will be different this year as well with plenty of changes due to the pandemic:

  • Significantly reduced capacity due to social distancing
  • Mobile tickets to enter the stadium
  • Enhanced cleaning on gamedays and non-gamedays
  • Hand sanitizer stations
  • Face coverings will be required (unless you are eating or drinking)
  • Cash will not be accepted at concession stands and merchandise locations
  • There will be no food and beverage sales in the aisles
  • In-Seat Food Service will not be available at the club level
  • Tailgating may be prohibited within Lambeau Field lots

On Tuesday team President Mark Murphy said the estimate at this time is for their to be anywhere from 10,000 to 12,000 fans in the stands this season. Officially the maximum capacity has not been finalized, though.
