GREEN BAY, Wis. — For the first time in franchise history, the Green Bay Packers are offering standing-room-only tickets to the general public.

In what the team is describing as a trial run, the Packers are selling standing-room only tickets to their next two home games. The first is against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and then again the following Sunday (Nov. 16) against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fans that purchase these tickets can stand behind Section 434 in the south end of Lambeau Field. The tickets are being sold for $75 each and are currently available online.

"The South End expansion was designed to have the capability of offering these types of tickets," Packers director of ticket operations Mark Wagner said. "After a season of operations in the South End and having an understanding of our guest experience in that section, we’re ready to try out the concept over the next two games.

"We’ll review the experience and then determine if we’ll offer these tickets for other high-demand games in the future."

After its recent expansion to 80,735 seats, Lambeau Field ranks third in the NFL in seating capacity.
