The Green Bay Packers are set to take on the San Francisco 49ers in a National Football league playoff game on Sunday January 5th. The game is going to be played in Green Bay, where the temperatures are expected to be extremely cold. Weather forecasts are predicting that temperatures will dip to negative two degrees by game time. With wind chill factored in, the weather could reach a staggering low of minus fifteen degrees, making it one of the coldest games in NFL history. These conditions are expected to be difficult for the players, and even more so for the fans.
Due to the harsh weather, free coffee and cocoa are going to be offered for fans at concession stands throughout Lambeau Field. The franchise is requesting that fans limit their intake to two drinks per person so that supplies do not run out. The hot drinks are likely to be desperately needed by fans, who will be subjected to approximately three hours of frigid conditions while watching their team take on the 49ers. The Packers are teaming up with a vending company, Delaware North Companies Sportsservice, to provide the refreshments. The announcement has received a positive reception from fans.
