Twentieth Anniversary Green & Gold Charity Softball Game Postponed

GRAND CHUTE, WI – The 20th Annual Green & Gold Charity Softball game that had been scheduled to be played at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium on Sunday, June 7 has been postponed due to the COVID-19 virus.

The organizers of the Green & Gold Charity Softball game are hopeful that the event will be able to be rescheduled for later this summer and are currently working on a new date for this year’s game. A new date and more details will be shared as soon as that information is available.

“We need to ensure we have a safe environment for all fans and players and need to line-up a date that works into the Packers training camp schedule, which has yet to be announced,” said Timber Rattlers president Rob Zerjav.

The NFL has stated that no on-field training can be done until all 32 teams in the league open their facilities. Since the charity softball game is scheduled around a Green Bay Packers camp in June and some teams will not be allowed into their facilities until after June 7, the game will have to be postponed due to no players being available for it.

Running back Aaron Jones is scheduled to be the captain of the offense for this year’s game.

“I have been very excited to host this year’s game. We want everyone to stay safe, and we will reschedule as soon as we can,” said Aaron Jones. “It’s a fun event for not only our fans but for us as a team that we are all looking forward to. I am committed to still making this game happen when we can. Thank you!”

All tickets that have already been purchased for the Green & Gold Charity Softball Game will be valid for the to-be-determined rescheduled date. The game and all ticket sales will benefit multiple charities in Northeastern Wisconsin, including causes impacted by COVID-19.
