Warning issued about counterfeit Packer playoff tickets

CREATED Jan. 5, 2012

GREEN BAY - Authorities have issued a warning for Packers fans about counterfeit playoff tickets for the team's two possible home games this month.

"Counterfeit tickets often look real enough that fans don't discover the ticket has been duplicated or is counterfeit until trying to enter the stadium," said Green Bay Police Lt. Kevin Warych in a news release made in conjunction with the Green Bay Packers.

"The best advice we can give is to do your research and know your source."

Officials say to always buy from a reputable source, like a ticket broker.

On Packers gamedays, people can find licensed sellers on Armed Forces Drive near Oneida Street.

The Packers will play either the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions or New York Giants in an NFC Divisional Playoff on Sunday, Jan. 15.

If they win that game, they will host the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22.
