In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Super Bowl I, the Green Bay Packers will honor several alumni who played against Kansas City in Super Bowl I at the Packers-Chiefs Monday Night Football matchup.
The alumni will be introduced from the field during halftime, and prior to kickoff, the captains from Super Bowl I, Willie Davis and Bob Skoronski, will join the current team captains for the coin toss.
With Monday’s game starting at 7:30 p.m. on a weekday, the Packers and WisDOT are also reminding fans that there will be increased traffic volume from commuter traffic in addition to gameday traffic. Those heading to Lambeau Field on Monday are advised to allow additional time to reach their destination and exercise caution, especially near the I-41 Project construction zones.
During pregame activities, Jim Taylor and Willie Davis each will be presented on the field with a Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence. Also prior to kickoff, the Packers will be recognizing Elvita Erdmann, Hispanic coordinator and sexual assault crisis counselor at Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin, with the Hispanic Heritage Leadership Award.
In addition to the Super Bowl I alumni, two featured alumni are scheduled to make appearances throughout the weekend; Brian Williams and Doug Evans will be taking part in fan activities at the Lambeau Field Atrium, Tundra Tailgate Zone and Legends Club leading up to kickoff.
Along the Fan Walkway on the stadium’s east side, as well as in the Atrium, fans can participate in Associated Bank’s Touchdown Central fan challenge, an interactive zone and football toss that features images of Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb acting as receivers, followed by a touchdown celebration photo opportunity featuring both players, along with Davante Adams.
