GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers returned to Lambeau Field on Tuesday afternoon to celebrate their Super Bowl 45 victory with their fans. 

Head coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers were among the members of the Packers to address the crowd. 

During the celebration, Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt said coach Mike McCarthy will get a street named after him, much like Ashwaubenon did for Mike Holmgren after Super Bowl XXXI.

It will be called, "McCarthy's Way."

The mayor's office says it doesn't know yet which street will be renamed, but the office says it will be a major one.

Rodgers was named the game's MVP.

The Packers say more than 56,000 people bought tickets for the "Return to Titletown" event. Packers officials say the event sold out earlier Tuesday.

Fans say they came out to see their favorite players and to catch a glimpse of the coveted Lombardi Trophy.

Doors didn't open until 2 p.m. but fans were piling into Lambeau Field's parking lot long before than to tailgate.

"I think it's glorious. There's not even a game going on, people came just to celebrate the Super Bowl victory and the return of the players," Patrick Tracy of Neenah told FOX 11.

Tuesday's "Return to Titletown" celebration sold out in a matter of minutes on Monday with tickets going for as much as $140. The Pack held off the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25, to win Super Bowl XLV Sunday and claim their 4th Vince Lombardi Trophy.
