Packers playoff ticket policy hits some fans hard


GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- 3,000 tickets are still available for Sunday's Packers playoff game against San Francisco.

The bitterly-cold weather forecast is likely a big reason for the slow sales, but another factor could be a new team policy.

Season ticket holders have to buy playoff tickets in November.

In the past, if the Packers didn't host a playoff game or didn't make the postseason, season ticket holders could apply their ticket money to next year's tickets or get a refund.

This year, the team did away with the refund option.

At least one season ticket holder says the policy put him in a tough spot this year.

"Yeah, it did somewhat. I definitely had to watch my Christmas budget. It came at a tough time of the year," said Don Reince.

The Packers have until 4 p.m. Friday to sell the remaining tickets or they risk a blackout in the Green Bay, Milwaukee and Wausau areas.

We'll still get the game in the Madison area.
