MADISON, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers and the New York Jets will play an exhibition football game next Aug. 9 at the University of Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium.
UW Athletic Director Elroy Hirsh said the game will generate needed extra income for the school's Athletic Department. He would not comment on the financial arrangements for the game, except to say the two National Football League teams and the school would split the gate receipts.
He said 30,000 to 35,000 tickets would have to be sold for the Athletic Department to break even.
The game would be the first professional football game held at Camp Randall, which seats 77,280 people.
