DATES SET FOR PACKERS TRAINING CAMP, PRESENTED BY BELLIN HEALTH

Action Kicks Off Monday, July 22

The Green Bay Packers today announced the dates of practices that are open to the public for the 2024 Packers Training Camp, presented by Bellin Health. This marks Green Bay’s 79th training camp, a tradition that began in 1946 under Curly Lambeau. As in the past, practices are scheduled to take place at Ray Nitschke Field and Packers Family Night will be at Lambeau Field.

Training camp kicks off with a practice on Monday, July 22, at 10:30 a.m., with the Annual Meeting of Shareholders taking place at 3 p.m. in Lambeau Field. The times for the rest of the practices that are open to the public will be announced at a later date. The 22nd will be the first of eight open practices in 10 days to close out the month of July (23-24, 26-28, 30-31).

The Packers will start August with an open practice on the 1st before Family Night takes place at Lambeau Field on Saturday, Aug. 3. Green Bay will have two open practices (Aug. 6-7) before traveling to Cleveland to take on the Browns in the first preseason game on Aug. 10 at 3:25 p.m. CT.

Green Bay will head back home, where it will have two open practices (Aug. 13-14) before going to Denver. They will have a joint practice (Aug. 16) before facing the Broncos on Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. CT.

The Packers finish off the open sessions of training camp with an open practice on Aug. 20 and then an open joint practice against Baltimore (Aug. 22) before facing the Ravens at Lambeau Field on Aug. 24 at 12 p.m.

Should inclement weather or any other factor force the team indoors, practices will be closed to the public due to space limitations inside the Don Hutson Center.

The annual Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health, is scheduled for Saturday evening, Aug. 3, at Lambeau Field. The format will be a full practice to accomplish the team’s preparation goals for the regular season. The evening remains family-focused and will feature a game-like atmosphere, including a thunderstick giveaway courtesy of Bellin Health, Pick ‘n’ Save and Metro Market, Sargento and Walbec Group, use of the video boards featuring promotions by Scheels, TDS and other partners, gameday music and a fireworks show presented by Ticketmaster at the end of the night. New this year, families attending can look forward to more kid-favorite food items at select concession stands, with specific menu items and their locations to be announced as the event approaches. The doors for the event will open at 5:30 p.m. and the team will take the field for warmups at 7 p.m. with practice starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, June 26, at 10 a.m. Tickets again are mobile only and priced at $10, available for purchase solely online through Ticketmaster at Ticketmaster.com. There will be a limit of 10 tickets per purchase during the first day of ticket sales. All individuals, regardless of age, require a ticket for admittance. New this year, fans must purchase a mobile parking pass in advance to park in the Lambeau Field parking lots for Family Night. Mobile parking passes are available at checkout when purchasing tickets for Family Night via Ticketmaster and the parking pass can be added to a mobile device’s digital wallet, similar to mobile tickets. Only one mobile parking pass per transaction may be purchased. Drivers will be permitted into the lot once they show the attendant their parking pass on their mobile device. Mobile parking passes are $5, with net proceeds to benefit Meijer’s Simply Give program and its mission to feed hungry families through local food-pantry partners, including Paul’s Pantry, The Salvation Army of Green Bay and the Giving Tree.

Green Bay’s home preseason game, presented by Cenex, is slated for Aug. 24 vs. Baltimore. The matchup with the Ravens is designated as the Packers Give Back Game, with a benefiting charity to be highlighted through the game and surrounding activities. More information about the nonprofit organization chosen for this year’s Packers Give Back Game will be announced soon.
