Packers traditions altered in COVID-19 world

If fans are able to watch their favorite Green Bay Packers take the field, there may be some changes they are not used to seeing due to COVID-19.

 

The NFL announced that training camps are expected to start on time for most teams, which would be July 28th for the Packers. While the Packers will continue to work out at their own facilities as mandated by the league, there has been no announcement on what that will mean for the fans. It could mean no open practices and also no bike rides for players, a tradition that dates back to the Lombardi days.

 

What is for sure is that the first eight rows of NFL stadiums will be tarped off so fans and players can keep their distances during games if they are allowed. The tarps will allow teams if they so choose to sell advertising to raise extra revenue. It might also mean the "Lambeau Leap" touchdown celebration goes to the wayside for at least one season. 

 

The NFL also announced Thursday it was canceling many of its of Hall of Fame activities including the preseason game due to the pandemic.
