Selection and Voting
After receiving the nominations, the FAN Hall of Fame selection committee will choose ten finalists. These profiles will be featured on Packers.com, and the public will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite fan during January. The ultimate winner is chosen based on both fan votes and the selection committee’s decision.
The grand announcement of the ultimate Packers fan will take place in late February at Lambeau Field. The winner will receive a spectacular array of prizes designed to create an unforgettable Packers experience. The winner and three friends will enjoy a private perspective of the action from four club seats at a Packers home game in 2024.
The winner will also receive four tickets to the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, a personalized Packers jersey to wear with pride, and a $500 gift certificate to the Packers Pro Shop.
That’s not all! The winner’s name will be etched in Packers history, included with other members in the prestigious Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame museum. It’s a dream come true for any Packers fan!
Last Year’s Inductee: John Breske
The 25th inductee to the Packers FAN Hall of Fame, John Breske of Elderon, is a true testament to the robust spirit and enduring loyalty of Packers fans. Breske, now 92 years old, has been a steadfast Packers fan since the Lombardi era. He is a former Silver Star and Marine recipient who served in the Korean War.
His commitment to the team is unrivaled. Breske holds 53 season tickets and has rarely missed a game. On home-game Sundays, he would load a bus with friends, relatives, and other fans to make the one-hour trip to Lambeau Field, signifying his love for the game and his dedication to the Packers community.
A cancer survivor, Breske’s impact extends beyond his support for the Packers. He also donated tickets to worthy causes and events that support finding a cure, demonstrating how the spirit of the Packers fan extends not just to the game but also to the community. His induction into the FAN Hall of Fame is a testament to his unwavering passion and dedication to the Packers.
The Green Bay Packers FAN Hall of Fame continues to be a testament to the incredible spirit, loyalty, and passion that defines the fanbase.
