The Green Bay Packers, winners of Super Bowl XLV, have announced their plans for the official victory celebration, set for Tuesday afternoon. Appropriately, it is called "Return to Titletown."
The champions opted not to do a traditional Super Bowl parade and instead will host a celebration, set to take place at Lambeau Field, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. local time Tuesday evening. The team is selling tickets for the event, which are $5 each -- they go on sale at 10 a.m. EST Monday morning, through Ticketmaster outlets , either in person, over the phone at (800) 745-3000 or online. (Parking is free.)
A portion of the Super Bowl celebration proceeds are going to the Packers Foundation charities.
The stadium gates will open at 2 p.m. If you are unable to attend in person, or can't purchase a ticket, "Return to Titletown" will be broadcast live locally on the following TV stations: WFRV, Green Bay; WTMJ, Milwaukee; WKOW, Madison; WAOW, Wausau/Rhinelander; WXOW, La Crosse; WQOW, Eau Claire; WYOW, Eagle River; and WJMN, Marquette, Mich. It will also be re-aired primetime Tuesday night.
The "Return to Titletown" event will feature Mark Murphy, president and CEO of the Packers, general manager Ted Thompson, head coach Mike McCarthy and some of the Packers. No word yet on QB Aaron Rodgers, who will spend Monday afternoon at the Super Bowl MVP parade at at Disney's Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.
The Packers stayed in Dallas Sunday night, with plans to return home to Green Bay some point Monday morning. The Super Bowl winners will touch down at Austin Straubel airport and then proceed in a motorcade to Lambeau Field (road closures start around 1:15 p.m. local time), with thousands of fans expected to greet them upon their arrival.
