Haylee Helmle, fan engagement specialist for the Packers, says they want to get fans everywhere involved.
“We are always looking for ways to engage with our fans that maybe aren’t able to attend any of our event or come to a game there’s Packers fans outside of the state of Wisconsin and outside of the country so I think anyway that we can engage with those fans we definitely looking to do.”
