ASHWAUBENON (NBC26) -- — The Packers' win against the Vikings yesterday has Green Bay fans looking forward to the rest of the season. But this first home game will be different than any other.
Fans will not be allowed in any part of the stadium; this includes the pro shop, hall of fame and the restaurant 1919. They also won't be allowed to be in the parking lot.
Mike Wier, owner of Kroll's West, says he really doesn't know what to expect Sunday.
“True Packer fans are true Packer fans, and I don’t think that goes away," said Wier. “The unanswered question is how many people will come to a stadium when they know they can’t get in it.”
Kroll's West is going to put all of their TVs outsides, as well as tables, chairs and a few bars.
“We’re not promoting to see how many people we can pack into our parking lot," said Wier.
Maddi Gard, a packers fan, said she doesn't think it's surprising the Packers aren't allowing anyone in the public areas at Lambeau, but she's grateful Titletown will still be open.
“It’s reasonable, as long as they’re letting us hang out here," said Gard. "I’ll take that. Still get to celebrate and be somewhat close to the stadium and see it. It’d be worse to just be at home.”
There will still be plenty of people in Titletown, she thinks.
“I feel like it’s going to be pretty busy," said Gard. "Kids are all going to be on the playground and it’s just going to be all like the community coming together to celebrate the first game. It’s going to be really fun.”
Whether out or at home, Packers fans will be bleeding green and gold Sunday, as the team faces off against the Detroit Lions at noon.
