GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers say Brett Favre's Hall of Fame induction ceremony will still be held inside the Lambeau Field Atrium. But, the team will open the stadium bowl for fans that want to watch the ceremony live on the video screens.
The induction and number retirement ceremony scheduled for July 18 inside the atrium is sold out. The limited atrium seating of about 1,600 had some shareholders and fans complaining about not being able to attend the ceremony.
The Packers said Friday tickets will be sold for $4 each for stadium bowl viewing on the TundraVision video boards. Favre will also make an appearance in the bowl to address the crowd. Tickets go on sale May 12th through Ticketmaster with a limit of eight per order. Net proceeds will go to the charitable organization, Favre 4 Hope.
