The Green Bay Packers caught fan Noah Bolton by surprise on Monday when he showed up at Lambeau Field to take a tour of the stadium.

They rewarded him for being the one-millionth visitor to take the stadium tour, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. The Spring Green, Wis., resident was given a custom jersey with “Tour 1M Fan” on the nameplate. He also received a large cupcake, a liftetime pass for stadium tours and the Packers treated him to lunch.

It wasn’t Bolton’s first tour. He took one 10 years ago.

“I wasn’t sure if (the tour manager) was serious or not,” Bolton said. “I’m definitely going to come take a tour every time I’m up here now. We were planning on coming up here yesterday, but I’m really glad we waited until today.”
