The Packers announced Friday that all tickets have been sold for Sunday’s NFC Wild Card Playoff game against the 49ers.

Packers corporate sponsors led by Associated Bank and television affiliates in Milwaukee, Green Bay and Wausau, Wisc., bought the remaining tickets to avoid a Friday afternoon deadline for an NFL blackout extension.

Fans attending the game are expected to encounter extreme conditions and one of the coldest recorded games at Lambeau Field. The National Weather Service forecast predicts game-time high temperature of near 2 degrees, dropping to minus 18 later in the evening. Mid-game temperatures could be as cold as minus-3.

“We’re very thankful to Packers fans, and our partners led by Associated Bank, for ensuring Sunday’s game will be sold out,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “A unique season and other factors contributed to having tickets available, but with the support of our fans and partners, we’re looking forward to a great atmosphere Sunday at Lambeau Field for the playoff game against the 49ers. We also know fans around the state will be able to enjoy the telecast.”
