During the regular season, the Packers don’ t have trouble selling out Lambeau Field , and the team has a long season-ticket waiting list. But getting the fans to show up for bitter cold games in the postseason can be tougher. And so the team is enticing fans with a special offer for Sunday ’s game against the Giants, when the forecast is for a game-time temperature of 12 degrees: Free hot chocolate at Lambeau Field .

This weekend, that means handing out free hot chocolate while trying to move a handful of tickets still available for Sunday's game.

The Packers and Delaware North will be offering free hot chocolate, limited to two per customer, during Sunday’s game to help fans battle the forecasted cold. The free hot chocolate will be available at each concession stand with hot chocolate on the menu, which is about 40 locations throughout the stadium.

Limited tickets for Sunday’s game remain available and can be purchased through Ticketmaster online only. Ticket prices range from $118 to $145, depending on location.

Sunday's weather forecast calls for mostly sunny skies (which is good news) with a high of 15 degrees and a low of 10 (which is not good news). The Packers offer some safety tips on how to handle the cold, including the following: "In addition, watch for warning signs of hypothermia, such as severe shivering, dizziness, drowsiness and confusion." Unfortunately, those same symptoms would describe Packers fans if Green Bay were to come up short against the Giants, as well.

Anyway, if you're headed to lovely Lambeau this weekend, make sure to bundle up, prepare for the worst ... and grab your free hot chocolate on your way to your seats.
