Murphy Takes 5 is a monthly column written by President and CEO Mark Murphy. On the first Saturday of every month, Mark will write about a topic of interest to Packers fans and the organization, and then answer five fan questions.
Do you have any special plans for the South End on Family Night, since it will be the first time many of our fans will be able to see the new addition?
Great question, Tim. We do have special plans for the South End on Family Night. We thought it would be a great night to recognize all the people who helped build the South End. We are providing free tickets to all the employees (and a guest) of Miron Construction and all the subcontractors who worked on the project. They did an outstanding job and took great pride in the work, and we thought this would be a good way to thank them. We are also providing free tickets to a number of Shopko employees, our gate partner for the South End, as well as the people who live in the neighborhood immediately south of the stadium. It should be a great evening – we have all kinds of events planned and expect 75,000 people to attend, which would be our biggest crowd ever. Also, we guarantee good weather!
