Packers announce when they'll retire Favre's No. 4

Favre is on now here.

The Green Bay Packers just announced that Brett Favre will be inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame on July 18 and his number will go up on the North facade during a game to be later announced.

This story will be updated as the press conference continues.

Favre said he has not spoken to Packers general manager, Ted Thompson or head coach Mike McCarthy, recently.

The Packers did say they are not selling tickets at this time.

They're currently asking Favre questions at the press conference here, right now.

Favre posted a video earlier today here.

The ceremony will be July 18 and could be the second-hottest ticket in 2015 - if they sell tickets - next to the game when they actually retire his number. 

During his career, Favre started an NFL record 297 consecutive games (253 with Green Bay from 1992-2007).

Favre holds NFL records for passing yards (71,838), touchdown passes (508), pass attempts (10,169), completions (6,300). He also has the records for most interceptions (336), most times sacked (525) and the most fumbles (166).
