Legendary Lambeau Field Tour

History. Dedication. Loyalty. Nothing better describes Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers, and their fans. On January 2, 2024, my husband and I took a trip up to Green Bay, WI (Brown County) and visited the famous Lambeau Field, which is home to the Green Bay Packers (one of the original NFL teams). Lambeau Field is the oldest stadium with an NFL team in continuous residence! The Green Bay Packers (the team itself) is solely owned by its fans. These are just two, of many, interesting facts about Lambeau Field and The Packers.

HISTORY

Before the NFL was a thing in 1919, Green Bay named their football team “The Packers.” It was named after their original sponsor, The Indian Packing Company. They were provided uniforms and a place to play. In 1957, they were moved into City Stadium and the stadium was renamed on August 3, 1965, to Lambeau Field. The stadium was named after Curly Lambeau, who played for the Packers for nine years and became head coach afterwards for 31 seasons through 1949. Upon his death in June 1965, they honored him by renaming the stadium Lambeau Field.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE

Visiting Lambeau Field was quite the experience. When walking into the front atrium, you are greeted by statues of Packers’ past and a five-story-high Vince Lombardi trophy (the Super Bowl trophy, that was also named after a famous Packer coach). The flooring throughout the building is outlined with the yard lines on the field. There are also facts posted around the building with the history of the field and team. If you are a football fan, regardless of the team you root for, this is one stadium that is worth visiting. You feel a sense of comradery with the team and history of the building. After exploring from bottom to top (literally, we went onto the roof!), it makes you appreciate The Packers that much more.

Another fun fact, Lambeau Field is the only stadium in the entire NFL that is sold out for every season and post-season game; making tickets difficult to come by. Luckily, the stadium is open for tours and events 362 days of the year (closed on Christmas Day, New Years Day, and Easter). Also, if you’re a resident of Brown County, you are offered tickets to every home game ahead of general ticket sales.

If you want to visit Lambeau Field, you can purchase tickets or schedule an event at https://www.packershofandtours.com/explore/stadium-tours. I highly recommend the Legendary Stadium Tour with Hall of Fame passes. It gives you the full experience. If you’re looking for tickets to a home game, you can find those here: https://www.packers.com/tickets/ (or on a reputable ticket resale site – like Ticketmaster).
