Once the remaining tickets went under 1,000 this morning, a group of corporate sponsors ponied up for the rest to have Sunday’s Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers game officially declared a sellout.
In addition to fan sales, a group of Packers corporate partners, led by Green Bay-based Associated Bank, purchased the remaining available tickets today to ensure a sellout and TV broadcast of the game throughout Wisconsin.
The other corporate partners who assisted in purchasing the final seats were Fox TV affiliates WITI (Milwaukee), WLUK (Green Bay) and WFXS (Wausau); Mills Fleet Farm and Bellin Health.
“We’re very thankful to Packers fans, and our partners led by Associated Bank, for ensuring Sunday’s game will be sold out,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.
