Tickets to this summers Packers‘ Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies will not be made available to the public. Brett Favre, who is scheduled for induction told Greta Van Susteren during a Fox News interview on Tuesday night, that he’d like to see the July 18 event moved from the Lambeau Field Atrium to Lambeau Field itself.
Lambeau Field’s seating capacity is more than 80,000. Favre said, “I would like to see, in my opinion, I’d like to see us do it in the stadium. I think everyone should have a chance to go.”
Packers Hall of Fame officials said the banquet sold out due to a high interest from sponsors and supporters.
In the past, a select amount of tickets have been made available for purchase to the public. The Packers said they planned to televise the banquet through their official affiliate to accommodate those who can’t attend.
Favre doesn’t know if the Packers Hall of Fame officials could even move the event inside the stadium. Favre said, “I can’t answer that, but I think the fans are the fans. I think they should have the option to come if they so choose. I couldn’t tell you if it would be 10,000, 60,000 but I think they should have that opportunity.”
