Like all teams around the NFL, the Green Bay Packers announced that there will be no fans in attendance at 2020 training camp practices.
“The tremendous support of cheering fans at Lambeau Field motivates all of us in the Packers organization,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “But after consulting with local health officials and reviewing League and CDC guidelines, we felt we needed to make this difficult decision. We will miss seeing so many of our fans, particularly the young ones, during this exciting time of year. We will continue to work on the protocols and logistics in the hope that we can welcome fans back to Lambeau Field for the regular season without jeopardizing the health of our players, team personnel and fans.”
Sucks for the fans base, but nearly enough to stop some rabid fans of the franchise.
ReporterAlec Ausmus shared on Saturday that two brothers flew in from New York to watch the Packers practice, but their only option was to sit on the ground and watch through a crack between the fence and tarp.
That is some extreme dedication.
