With the Packers-Cowboys divisional playoff game on Sunday, the Packers are inviting fans to get loud at Lambeau Field a day early for a free pep rally on Saturday, Jan. 10.
Beginning at 6 p.m., fans are encouraged to bring their energy and excitement for Sunday’s playoff game to Lambeau Field’s Oneida Nation Gate, where a large stage will be set at the foot of the stairs.
Large screens measuring 12 feet wide and eight feet tall will be set at the stage, showing coverage of Saturday’s divisional playoff games. The pep rally will be modeled after Packers Everywhere pep rallies, which are hosted at select away game locations each season.
Attendees are asked to park on the north end of the stadium near the Bellin Health Gate, with access off Ridge Road, due to an event at the Resch Center.
To celebrate the first Packers-Cowboys playoff matchup at Lambeau Field since the Ice Bowl in 1967, several members of that Ice Bowl team will be in attendance. Pro Football Hall of Famer Dave Robinson, and his teammates Donny Anderson, Chuck Mercein, Jerry Kramer and Boyd Dowler will discuss their memories from that historic game.
Prior to the pep rally, the Tundra Tailgate Zone (TTZ) will be open to fans from 3 to 6:30 p.m., where food and beverages provided by Saz’s will be available for purchase. Inside the TTZ, televisions will also show coverage of Saturday’s playoff matchups.
In addition, Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy will take part in the pre-gameday pep rally activities, as well as Wayne Larrivee, the radio voice of the Packers, who will emcee the event. Packers.com editor Vic Ketchman and Larrivee will then preview the next day’s game to conclude the event. Following the rally, the alumni will sign autographs in the Packers Pro Shop.
The event will also feature several fan giveaways, and beverages will be available for fans to purchase throughout the pep rally. In case of inclement weather, the entire program will be moved inside the TTZ.
