Family Night this year will feature a full practice instead of a scrimmage. As the team has continually assessed its preparation methods in recent years, it was determined a full practice is necessary to accomplish its preparation goals for the regular season. The full practice will include 11-on-11 sessions that will feature live contact.
The evening remains family-focused and will feature a game-like atmosphere with use of the video boards, gameday music and a fireworks show at the end of the night.
Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and the Packers’ 2013 highlight film will be playing on the video boards as fans enter the stadium. Warm-ups will begin on the field at 6:25 p.m. and team introductions will follow at 7:30 p.m. The practice will begin at 7:45 p.m.
Activities include 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, the Copps–Pick ‘N Save Family Night Picnic and the spectacular Copps–Pick ‘N Save Fireworks Show to conclude the night.
Other on-field activities include an NFL flag football game, a performance by the Green Bay Elite Dance Team and other to-be-determined entertainment highlights. More details will be announced in the near future.
The Packers will also welcome representatives from the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Association to Family Night as their official community guests. More than 40 representatives of the organization will make up the Packers Ambassador Line as the players take the field.
Parking for the event will be $5, with net proceeds to be donated to the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Program.
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 cancelled.
For fans not attending the event, WLUK-TV FOX 11 again will originate a statewide telecast. In addition to Green Bay, the event will be televised on WITI-TV in Milwaukee, WMSN-TV in Madison, WFXS-TV in Wausau, WLAX-TV in La Crosse and WEUX-TV in Eau Claire. It will be hosted by Drew Smith and other members of the Fox 11 sports and news staffs.
