GREEN BAY, Wis. (WTAQ) - Green Bay Packers fans interested in seeing the team off when they leave for Super Bowl XLV will have their chance Monday.
Due to security reasons, the Packers will be traveling via buses directly from Lambeau Field to its charter aircraft at Austin Straubel Airport and therefore not walking through the airport terminal.
The big sendoff will take place at 11:45 a.m. at the Mills Fleet Farm Gate in the southwest parking lot.
Plans have also been made for those wanting to cheer on the Packers when they return to Lambeau on Monday, Feb. 7.
Fans are being asked to gather on Packerland Drive, Hazelwood Lane and Lombardi Avenue as the team’s buses return.
An exact time has not been determined, but it is expected to be between 2 and 3 p.m.
The Green Bay Packers are also planning a special “Return to Titletown” celebration on Tuesday, February 8th at Lambeau Field, from 4 to 5 p.m. The event will only take place if the Packers win Super Bowl XLV.
Tickets priced at $5, will go on sale Monday, February 7th at 9 a.m. through Ticketmaster. A limit of 20 tickets per person will be in place. A portion of the proceeds will benefit charity. Parking will be free.
Players, coaches, and team officials will take part in the event. There will also be a special season highlights video and fireworks.
