GREEN BAY--(WFRV) It took only 14 minutes for all 1,000 tickets to Donald Driver's Retirement Party Wednesday to be given away.
Tickets were given out on a first come first serve basis, and were limited to four tickets per person.
Not even sub zero temperatures could keep eager fans from lining up to get a chance to say goodbye to their beloved receiver.
It's the love for Donald Driver that brought several hundred fans to Lambeau Friday morning for a chance to get tickets to his retirement send off.
"They were lined up from the Oneida entrance from the ticket booth all the way to the next entrance which I believe is the Bellin Health and around the corner," said Mark Luebke, who was one of the lucky few to get tickets.
The ticket booth opened at 9:00 a.m. by 9:14 a.m. all the tickets were gone.
"Got up at 5:00 this morning and drove three hours to get to Green Bay so we could say goodbye to Donald," said one Packer fan.
Fans were limited to four tickets each. So many people in line were there to share their love for the all time leading receiver with loved ones.
Luebke said, "I have a lovely mother-in-law who has a birthday tomorrow and she's a Donald Driver fan so I stood in line to get her the ticket."
Jonathon Hubbard said, "My mom wanted to go see Donald Driver for his last few days here as a Green Bay Packer."
But not everyone was as fortunate, several fans who turned up at 9 a.m. were turned away.
Packer officials say they weren't surprised tickets went so quickly and released a statement saying "They're very excited about Wednesday and are focusing all of their attention on the event."
The event kicks off Wednesday morning at 11 a.m.
