"The fans' response to Fan Fest tickets was beyond anyone's expectations," Packers executive vice president and chief operating officer John Jones said in a team news release. "We're very grateful to their response and acceptance to this new event. We look forward to having a great time at Lambeau Field Atrium in March."
Fan response overwhelmed phone lines. In one letter to the editor of a Green Bay newspaper, a fan from Minnesota who had made hotel reservations in anticipation of coming said "my dreams of seeing present and past Packer greats have been decimated."
Fan Fest will be held March 11-13.
