GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- The annual meeting for Packers shareholders will be virtual this year, due to concerns of the coronavirus pandemic. The meeting is slated for July 23 at 11 a.m. CDT.
The Packers Board of Directors made the decision Wednesday to make the meeting virtual, the Packers said on its website.
"As there still is uncertainty with respect to being able to hold gatherings of more than 50 people, and although we are hopeful that will change as we move into July, for planning purposes, our Board of Directors and I have decided to hold this year's meeting virtually," Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said in a letter to shareholders.
The Packers said meeting details, including instructions on how to attend the meeting virtually, were included in proxy information being sent to more than 360,000 shareholders.
Lambeau Field has been closed since March to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The Packers Pro Shop reopened just this week.
