Packers fans eagerly await chance at NFC Championship tickets

The countdown is on to watch Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Sunday's NFC Championship game at Lambeau Field.

Seeing the action in-person, though, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But a father and son snagged tickets to the previous week's game before seats sold out in just 27 minutes. Now, they are going for it again.

"My voice actually just started recovering from yelling so much at last weekend’s game," said Luke Ponga.

Still glowing from the Packers' victory over the Rams, Ponga said Titletown was electric on Saturday.

"Everyone was screaming as loud as they could. Especially at the end, the 'MVP' chants, that is something I’ll never forget," Ponga said.

Ponga, a graduate student at MSOE, cheered on the Pack with a few family friends, his sister and their dad, Mark.

"Everyone around us, yelling and jumping up and down," said Mark Ponga.

On a waiting list for more than three decades, the born-and-raised Packers fanatic finally had his turn.

"He signed up back in his 20s," Luke said. "And they stopped allowing fans because of COVID." 

When the Lambeau Field gates opened last week with limited capacity, Mark scored six seats.

For the conference championship game, 6,500 tickets are up for grabs. Season ticket holders who opted-in over the summer are eligible to buy them. On Wednesday morning, the father and son will try going two-for-two -- a moment to share between generations, a memory they hope to make from the stands.

"Well it’s Aaron Rodgers' first NFC Championship game at home, we’ve been waiting for this for a long time," said Luke.

If you are lucky enough to score tickets to Sunday's game, what will it cost? The Packers say prices range from $215 to $280 per seat, based on location.
