Packers wildcard tickets sold out, keeping alive 58-year streak


If any Green Bay Packers fans thought they could just walk up to the box office and get a ticket for Sunday's NFC wildcard playoff game against the New York Giants, they are out of luck.

The Packers announced late on Saturday they had sold out the game at Lambeau Field. Stories surfaced on Friday that tickets were still available through the team and resale sites.

That surprised some observers, given the Packers have sold out every game at Lambeau Field since November 1959.

Fans attending Sunday's match can expect cold temperatures, with a forecasted high of -9 degrees Celsius, but Green Bay fans have seen worse.

Free hot chocolate will be available at concession stands throughout the stadium, and the team issued this helpful advice on its website: "Learn the signs of frostbite and seek medical attention immediately if you notice grayish, white or yellowed skin, pain or numbness, or waxy skin."
