Book a luxury suite to see the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field!
The small city of Green Bay, Wisconsin has been forever put on the map by their beloved football franchise, the Green Bay Packers. As the only non-profit community-owned sports team in the US, these cheese heads will make sure the Packers never leave.
Some of the most legendary names in the game have been associated with this storied franchise. Team co-founder, former player, and former coach Curly Lambeau lives on through the stadium which is named after him. Lambeau Field, the famous home of the Green Bay Packers, is known throughout the league for their passionate fans and freezing temperatures. Nicknamed “the frozen tundra”, Lambeau Field hosted the famous Ice Bowl in 1967 between the Packers and the Dallas Cowboys.
The sidelines in those days was patrolled by a man who has grown into a mythical sports figure. Vince Lombardi led the Packers to six NFL championships and victories in the first two Super Bowls. In fact his name is so synonymous with winning that the NFL named their Super Bowl trophy after him.
The Packers iconic green and gold uniforms immediately call to mind legends of the gridiron from past seasons. Countless Hall of Fame players have called Lambeau Field home over the years. Included among this prestigious list are Bart Starr, Paul Hornung, Don Hutson, Jim Taylor, Ray Nitschke, Jerry Kramer, Reggie White, and Brett Favre.
Green Bay is Title Town, winners of 11 NFL Championships and four Super Bowls. Their most recent championship came in 2010 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Led by Aaron Rodgers, the Packers took an early lead and never looked back, winning 31-25.
The team has been trying to get back to that plateau ever since. Winning all but three division titles since that year (including a third place finish in 2018), the Packers have yet to make it back to the big game. A talented roster, highlighted by Aaron Rodgers, one of the best players in the game today, takes the field with a confidence few teams can match. Offensive weapons in Davante Adams and tight end Jimmy Graham along with a multitude of running backs (led by Aaron Jones) give Rodgers a chance to win every week. The defense, led by safety Tramon Williams, keeps this squad in the game each week. Letting go of Clay Matthews after 10 seasons is tough, but the Pack will go on.
The 2018 season was frustrating for Packers fans as Green Bay take another step back to a final regular season record that barred them from a postseason berth. The Packers made major headlines by firing head coach Mike McCarthy towards the end of the year. After nearly 13 full seasons and one Super Bowl title, McCarthy was unceremoniously let go. There is a strong message coming from upper management that they expect more from this team and will make the tough decisions in pursuit of their next championship ring. Matt LaFleur has been named the new head coach in Green Bay. An offensive pedigree that includes time as quarterback coach and offensive coordinator has Rodgers and company excited to see what his playbook will bring to their team. A new course is clearly being chartered in the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. For more information about the Green Bay Packers and their history click here.
