Packers Green Versus Gold Package | What Does That Mean?

Do you wonder what the Packers “Green” versus “Gold” package means? Is there some sort of way to find out which games are which? Ticket King has your answer. First, you don’t really need to know which games are “Green” or “Gold” we sell Green Bay tickets for every home and away game on the schedule. But there are some things to know about how the tickets are divided.

It helps to understand that at one time the Packers played two regular season games at County Stadium in Milwaukee Wisconsin. They also played a preseason game in Milwaukee each year. Believe it or not, there wasn’t such high demand for Packer tickets during the 1970’s. The franchise struggled to fill Lambeau Field. Their solution was to court the fans that lived in Milwaukee. After all, Milwaukee is over five times the size of Green Bay. So the organization split the season tickets.  The “Green Package” covers seven games (one preseason, and six regular season games in total.)  The “Gold Package” covers the three games that used to be played in Milwaukee (one preseason, and two regular season games.)

Milwaukee Fans Drive To Green Bay For Gold Games

When the Packers decided to move those games back up to Lambeau Field, that meant the Milwaukee season ticket holders would have to drive two hours north to see their team play. Milwaukee ticket holders get home game two and five, every season. For 2022, Milwaukee ticket holders will have Packers vs. Patriots and Green Bay vs. Tennessee Titans games. On those days, expect traffic to be heavy on interstate 43, leading to Green Bay from the Milwaukee area.  All the other home games are “Green” package games.  While traffic can be heavy going into and out of Green Bay on any game day, it tends to disburse outward into all directions on “Green” package days.

Packers Tickets for London Game in 2022

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
The Packers will take on the Giants at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 10/9/22

Of all the games on the Packers 2022 schedule, one game stands out. Green Bay will face the New York Giants at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, on October 9. Green Bay is one of the last NFL teams to play overseas. The Packers organization knew that the economic impact of losing a home game would be significant. At some point, they had to commit to a game, as each NFL team is required to play in various locations such as Mexico, Germany, or England. For the Packers, that time has come.

In the United States, kickoff will be at 8:30 a.m. Central time. The big question is how to get tickets for the Packers game in London. In early May, the Packers announced that a “very limited” number of tickets would be made available for Packers season ticket holders. At that time, prices and seat locations were not known. Now that the entire 2022 NFL schedule has been released, tickets for that game are showing up on broker sites like ours. Current prices reflect a number of things such as the conversion from Dollars to Pounds, the scarcity of tickets in the resale marketplace, and the demand for tickets from the local fans in England. If you do plan to attend the game, be sure to work with a trusted ticket source such as Ticket King.

If you are staying in central London for the game, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is in northern region of the city, in Tottenham. It’s easily accessible via the Overground Orange Line, starting at the Liverpool Street Station. Exit at the White Hart Lane station, and walk east to the stadium.

BMO Harris Pavilion History & Design

This award-winning, outdoor Milwaukee venue was completed in 2012. It’s one of the many stages on the Summerfest grounds, and it’s located just north of the American Family Insurance amphitheater. It’s one of only two venues that allow for reserved seating during Summerfest performances. The pavilion seats 5000 people, with room for much more if you add the standing room areas behind the assigned seats. Some shows have assigned seats throughout the venue, whereas other less popular events may list the center sections as reserved. ADA seating can be found in nine separate areas in the venue.

The BMO Harris Pavilion is nearly 50,000 square feet in area, with grand views of Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee skyline for ticket holders that sit in sections to the right of the stage. The pavilion can be accessed from any festival entrance, but for shows that occur before or after Summerfest, try entering the south gates to make your journey to your seats as short as possible.
