GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers' annual Family Night practice is set for 5:30 p.m. July 31, a Sunday evening at Lambeau Field.
In its 16th season, Family Night again will be a practice instead of a scrimmage, including 11-on-11 sessions with live contact. It marks the third consecutive year of a practice setting. The night will be an official introduction of the 2016 Packers, roughly one week into the start of training camp.
Family Night is one week before the Packers open their preseason schedule against the Indianapolis Colts on Aug. 7 in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.
Family Night tickets priced at $10 will go on sale 10 a.m. June 27 via Ticketmaster and at the Lambeau Field box office. Parking will be $5. Proceeds go to Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program.
No refunds will be issued in case of inclement weather unless all events are canceled.
The Packers said their training camp schedule will be announced in the "near" future.
The Packers' busy summer schedule will begin at 11 a.m. July 21 with the annual shareholders' meeting in the Lambeau Field bowl.
Up to four tickets will be issued to each shareholder account. Proxy materials and information on tickets will be mailed in mid-June. The Packers said any shareholder who has not received communications from the team in the past 12 months should contact Shareholders Services at (855) 846-7225 or email@example.com.
Last year's attendance was just short of 12,000. The record annual meeting attendance is 18,707, set in 1998. The Packers have 363,948 shareholders around the world.
