The Green Bay Packers are a legendary team and one of the sports most storied franchises in the NFL. According to the Bleacher Report, it is also ranked as the second most popular tailgating location in the NFL behind the Kansas City Chiefs. And no wonder - there’s not a lot of other options when you visit Green Bay! A tiny town of 100,000, if you’re visiting to see the Packers play, then it’s likely that your entire trip will be centered around football since there is a lack of other cultural and entertainment hotspots in the area to choose from. If you’re traveling in from out of town, we can help you arrange flights, game tickets (obviously) as well as local hotel accommodations. Our portfolio of airline and hotel partners mean you’ll get the best deal, no matter what. At Bookseats.com, no detail is too small and no plan is too big for us! At Bookseats.com, we take care of the organizational details so you don’t have to.
The Green Bay Packers play at Lambeau Field, which was first opened in 1957. Originally known as “City Stadium,” it was renamed in 1965 to honor the memory of one of the Packers’ all-time greats, Curly Lambeau. Curly was a founder, player and long-time head coach, and left a lasting impression on the team and the city of Green Bay.
As the only team in the league to be publicly owned, they are unique. The public nonprofit known as Green Bay Packers, Inc. has over 360,000 shareholders, with no one individual allowed to own any more than 200,000 shares (or 4%) of the approximately 5,000,000 total shares. It is this kind of public support that has helped keep the team in Green Bay for over a century, even though it is the smallest football market in the U.S. (as well as the smallest market in all North American Sports). No other team is permitted to have this kind of ownership structure, as the NFL instituted a 1980s-era rule that mandated any future teams would require a maximum of 32 owners per team, with one owner holding a minimum stake of 30%.
The Packers are one of the oldest teams in the NFL, having joined in 1921.
The maximum capacity of Lambeau Field is 81,441. Oddly enough for a team in such a small NFL market, if you add in the extra capacity from standing room attendees, it becomes the fifth-largest stadium in the NFL, a testament to the popularity of the team in the area.
Green Bay is unique in the NFL in that it is a truly tiny city. With a total population of only 100,000, you simply don’t have the nightlife or cultural options that you might find in a more populous city or state. For this reason, when you fly or drive to Green Bay, you don’t have to make a choice between staying near the local airport, the city center, or the stadium, since they’re all in the same place! For help finding the right accommodation options for you and your group, take a closer look at one of our packages, or call Bookseats.com and we’ll help you find an option that works best for you.
To get to Green Bay you either have to fly into Austin Straubel International Airport (GRB), located only a 10-minute drive from Lambeau Field, or you must fly to Milwaukee and drive north for two hours.
