GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers will not have cheerleaders at the Super Bowl.
UW-Green Bay and St. Norbert College provide cheerleaders for the Packers’ home games. And those schools said Tuesday that the Packers will not take any of their home game promotional elements to Dallas for the February 6th game against Pittsburgh.
Team spokesman Aaron Popkey said the cheerleaders, the Tundra Line drum group, the Ambassador Line, and D.J. Malcolm are “unique” to Lambeau Field – and they’re never involved in any games away from home.
St. Norbert athletic director Tim Bald said his school was honored to be involved at the home games.
UW-Green Bay cheering coach Ann Rodrian said her team will be disappointed to stay home. That’s because they were invited to the Packers’ last two Super Bowl appearances in the 1990’s – and they raised most of their own funding for those trips.
