GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers are finishing off their celebration of 100 seasons with a birthday bash on the team’s 100th birthday: Sunday, August 11.
As part of the celebration, the Packers organization says it's giving away a piece of Lambeau. The Packers will give away seed packets containing the same seed that grows into grass at Lambeau Field.
The Packers say the first 5,000 fans at the Atrium on August 11 will receive seed packets for free, with one in every 50 seed packets autographed by one of the following: Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Kenny Clark, Jaire Alexander, Blake Martinez, Head Coach Matt LaFleur, General Manager Brian Gutekunst or Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.
Fans can learn more and register their seed packets online at packers.com/100seeds to see where the seed is growing all over the country.
According to the Packers, fans who arrive later in the day or who are unable to visit on Aug. 11 can purchase seed packets at the Packers Pro Shop for $5, in-store or online, with 100 percent of the purchase price benefitting the American Red Cross.
To be eligible to receive one of the first 5,000 seed packets, the Packers say fans must sign up for Packers Pass through the Official Packers App on their mobile device.
Fans without mobile devices are encouraged to sign up for Packers Pass through packers.com/passregister and print out the unique code to bring with them, or visit the Packers Pass kiosk in the Lambeau Field Atrium once training camp begins for assistance.
