GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers will make a visit to the White House on Friday August 12.
The team will visit President Barack Obama just one day before their first preseason game in Cleveland.
"To get an organization like the Green Bay Packers with 170, 175 people and moving parts in the middle of training camp and coordinate with the White House," says General Manager Ted Thompson. "We're glad we were able to find a day and we're looking forward to it."
The NFL lockout prevented the green and gold from making the trip earlier this summer.
Cornerback Charles Woodson says it's about time. So can they convert the President to a Packers fan?
"We should, I don't know what he's waiting on," Woodson says. "There's some good football played up here...he should jump on board."
Details for the visit to the nation’s capital are still being finalized.
