Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Saturday Night's Wild Card match-up between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers is prompting officials at Lambeau Field to step up enforcement and cut off alcohol sales earlier than usual.

According to the Packer's website, stadium and law enforcement personnel will be extra vigilant at the game given the unique circumstances of the match-up being on Saturday night, playoffs and a division rival.

In addition to the added vigilance, alcohol sales will stop at the beginning of the third quarter, earlier than the standard end of the third quarter.

“Night games previously have presented us with more challenges than normal with regard to inappropriate behavior," says Doug Collins, the Packers’ director of corporate security/risk management. "We are asking fans to enjoy the game responsibly and also help us out by reporting poor conduct to stadium and law enforcement personnel, either in person, or by text at the number posted in the stadium.

Collins also wants to remind fans to make their way to the stadium entry gates early since enhanced security is still in place at Lambeau Field.
