Major snowfall is expected to touch down in Green Bay this weekend — and the Packers are enlisting help to get their stadium game-ready.

On Friday, the NFL team issued a call for volunteers to help shovel snow on Sunday morning ahead of their playoff matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. The Packers are requesting up to 700 willing fans to help in the snow-removal process, beginning at 6 a.m. local time.

The Wisconsin area that is home to Lambeau Field is due for a storm on Saturday, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, with a possible 10 inches of snow overnight and winds up to 40 miles per hour.

Those willing and able to shovel away the snow will be compensated $12 per hour for their work, according to the Packers website, with payments made immediately after.
