Brown County residents whose names were chosen in the drawing for a yet-to-be-determined 2016 Green Bay Packers home game have purchased all available tickets.
Initial invoices for the annual drawing were mailed in March, with an April 6 deadline for payment. Tickets remained available after the initial deadline and a second drawing was held. During the second round of the process, the number of names drawn was more than the number of available tickets and selected residents were encouraged to submit payment early to secure tickets.
Residents who paid for tickets will receive notification this month of the game tickets they will receive, with tickets mailed in late July. As was the case during recent seasons, if a 2015-selected resident who received tickets for a preseason game was selected again to be able to purchase tickets in 2016, he or she will be guaranteed tickets to a regular-season contest.
This season the number of tickets used for the program was reduced from 4,000 to 3,000 per game (30,000 per season). This adjustment was made to reflect the decreased demand in recent years, as many registered Brown County residents have opted not to purchase tickets through the program when selected in the drawing.
