GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -

Once again, the Green Bay Packers are asking the community to help remove snow from Lambeau Field.

The team says shoveling will begin Thursday at 9 a.m. The Packers are looking for as many as 600 shovelers to clear snow throughout the day as needed.

Workers need to be at least 15-years-old and they'll be paid $10 per hour. The team provides the shovels.

The shoveling ritual generally takes place a few times per season at Lambeau, an outdoor stadium that can get heavy snowfall in a short time. Heating coils under the field help keep the playing surface snow-free, but snow can quickly pile up in the stands.

Green Bay hosts the Minnesota Vikings in a first-round playoff game Saturday evening.
