Green Bay Packers Tickets
Green Bay Packers Tickets - Description
The Green Bay Packers have been in existence since 1919 and joined the newly formed National Football League in 1921. The team won the first two Super Bowls in 1966 and 1967 under legendary head coach Vince Lombardi. The Packers struggled through the 1970s and 1980s until finding success again behind quarterback Brett Favre, winning Super Bowl XXXI in 1997 over the New England Patriots. Favre played for the Packers through the 2007 season, and, after Favre's controversial departure that saw the Packers hand the quarterback job to young Aaron Rodgers, the Packers won their fourth Super Bowl, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV in 2011. The Packers are a non-profit organization, owned by about 112,000 shareholders.
Watching the Green Bay Packers
If you're lucky enough to hang out with the Cheeseheads at Lambeau Field, you're going to see football tradition and local pride like nowhere else. The Packers are community owned and beloved. Tailgaters in this neck of the woods prefer bratwurst to nachos. Packer fans don't mind being called a Cheesehead. They relish it by wearing cheese-wedge hats. Be prepared to witness the traditional Lambeau Leap when the Packers score a touchdown. You'll also see a lot of green and gold at a Packers game. The stadium has been sold out since 1960.
Lambeau Field, Home of the Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers have played their home games at Lambeau Field since 1957. The venue, known at the time as City Stadium, was constructed to replace the Packers' original field, which had hosted the team since 1925. At the time of its construction, the stadium was considered to be highly unusual in that it was the first structure that had been specifically built for football events. Lambeau Field initially provided room for roughly 33,000 guests; however, more and more seating has been added over time. After the latest stadium renovation in 2003, the stadium's capacity was increased to 73,128 people, and an additional south end-zone expansion is expected to occur in the near future.
Green Bay Packers 2011 Team Outlook
Repeating as Super Bowl champions might be a distinct possibility for the Green Bay Packers in 2011. Few teams can match the talent the Packers possess on both sides of the ball. The offense is loaded from top to bottom. No one impresses quite like Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers. He played a key role in the Packers postseason run a year ago and beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the finale by throwing for 304 yards and three touchdowns. Green Bay is loaded on defense too. Clay Matthews was named as the NFL defensive player of the year as the leader of a unit that forced opponents to cough up the ball. The Packers snagged 24 interceptions, good for second in the NFL. They also ranked second among NFL teams with 47 sacks.
