Tailgate at the Tundra

JAN. 16, 5:00 - 9:00 P.M., LAMBEAU FIELD

We're kicking off things at the legendary Lambeau Field. This event is the perfect way to get energized for the conference while enjoying the unique charm of this iconic stadium.

What's happening:

  • Tours of Lambeau Field

  • Tailgate party at the Champions Club with food, drinks, prizes and plenty of entertainment 

What's the Champions Club?

Sitting high above the South End Zone, every area within the Champions Club provides an extraordinary view of Lambeau Field. It has been deemed the unofficial stadium penthouse thanks to its access to the South Loft (rooftop deck) and its high-class appeal and spacious layout. Decked out with historic facts and legendary Packers memorabilia, it exudes a nostalgic, classic feel that's perfect for guests to enjoy receptions, buffet-style meals and more. Guests can even enjoy conversing while sitting in the elegant stadium seats prominently overlooking the field.
