Brett Favre

MADISON — Brett Favre will be taking part in a charity flag football game at the University of Wisconsin’s Camp Randall Stadium on July 19th, and on Wednesday, June 3rd, fans lined up to get tickets.

Tickets for the game went on sale on Wednesday morning.

The event, pitting former Packers against NFL All-Stars will come a day after Favre is inducted into Packers Hall of Fame during a ceremony at Lambeau.

Organizers and a Packers spokesman say a scheduling conflict at Lambeau and the game’s proximity to the start of the NFL season prevented the team game from being held in Green Bay.

So Favre thought the next best place to hold the game would be Madison, which is about a two-hour drive southwest from Lambeau.

Tickets for the game start at $34 each. They are being sold through the Badgers ticket office.
