Not a long blog, but breaking news out of the Packer Nation and for those who must know:

All tickets have been sold for Sunday’s NFC Wild Card Playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers, the Packers announced Friday morning.

In addition to fan sales, a group of Packers corporate partners, led by Green Bay-based Associated Bank, purchased the remaining available tickets Friday to ensure a sellout and TV broadcast of the game throughout Wisconsin. Other corporate partners with a strong Wisconsin presence that purchased tickets are FOX TV affiliates WITI (Milwaukee), WLUK (Green Bay) and WFXS (Wausau); Mills Fleet Farm and Bellin Health.

“We’re very thankful to Packers fans, and our partners led by Associated Bank, for ensuring Sunday’s game will be sold out,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “A unique season and other factors contributed to having tickets available, but with the support of our fans and partners, we’re looking forward to a great atmosphere Sunday at Lambeau Field for the playoff game against the 49ers. We also know fans around the state will be able to enjoy the telecast.”

“As a longtime partner with the Packers’ organization, we are honored to help ensure that fans can enjoy the full Packers playoff experience this Sunday, both at Lambeau Field in in their homes,” said Associated Banc-Corp President & CEO Philip B. Flynn.

And I also read on WTMJ’s website that SOME of the tickets for the Packers/Niners WildCard Game had been offered to the Niners Fans, but they weren’t sold nor accepted. Really Niner fans?!!! We Wisconsin folks offered some ticket to you and refused? Wow!!! Talk about being fair weathered folks. But that’s ok, because some of the fans, students, and Military Personnel will be at Lambeau regardless of the game. Enjoy the elements of the Frozen Tundra! Even in the negatives.



On a side note: that’s what best for business. Even if its concerns football, supporters, partners and most of all: fans.
