You can breathe a sigh of relief if you live around Green Bay and were planning to watch the NFC Wild Card match-up between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers.

The game will be televised after fans and corporate sponsors purchased the last of 1,000 remaining tickets early Friday.

“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.”

“As a longtime partner with the Packers’ organization, we are honored to help ensure that fans can enjoy the full Packers playoff experience this Sunday, both at Lambeau Field in in their homes,” said Associated Banc-Corp President & CEO Philip B. Flynn.

The Packers are a slight underdog for Sunday’s contest against the 49ers.
