    Will you be making any stops? Can you pick me up at my house/rest stop/parking lot etc…?

    We get it, you don’t want drive into Chicago and then take a bus back up North because you live an hour away. NO WE WILL NOT BE MAKING ANY SCHEDULED PICK UP’s OR DROP OFF’s this year. Everyone wants to get to the game and back ASAP. Please don’t call and ask if we can pick you up on the Wisconsin border or at a rest stop etc… Meet at The Ogden or meet us in Lambeau at Krolls are the only two options. There is no discount if you choose to meet us at Krolls and not take the bus.

    What about tailgating?

    The Ogden will not be offering a tailgate, however don’t let us stop you! There is tailgating all over and you can bring whatever supplies you’d like. Due to time constraints, most people just head to one of the bars up there. Krolls is really nice and they generally have plenty of room to get in. The stadium is literally right next door to where we park so it’s just a short walk over.

    How do I get my tickets? How do my friends get their tickets?

We will not for any reason release the game tickets to you before the day of the game.
