Packers Fan Not Allowed to Wear Gear on Soldier Field Sideline
Ahead of the Green Bay Packers matchup against the Chicago Bears on Sunday – a Packers fan has lost a court battle to wear green and gold on the sidelines of Soldier Field.
A federal judge reportedly denied a request from Russell Beckman for a temporary restraining order and injunction so he could wear Packers’ attire on the sideline during pregame warmups before the lawsuit he filed last year is officially decided.
Beckman has Bears season tickets, and a team rewards program lets season ticket holder stand on the sideline for pregame warmups. He argues the rule prohibiting fans from wearing opposing team gear on the sidelines violates his rights to free speech.
