With 13 World Championships, the Green Bay Packers have enjoyed the most wins
out of any team in the NFL. Being the third-oldest team in the league, the story of the
Packers begins before the team's formation in 1919. Tracing the team's lineage
through the late 1890's to a few semi-professional teams that were the forerunners
to the Packers gives those with Green Bay Packers tickets a real connection with the
history of the sport. Additionally, the team is the only professional team
to be community owned and operated as a non-profit entity.
Joining the American Professional Football Association (APFA), a forerunner to the
current National Football League (NFL) in 1921, the team has gone on to offer any
fans lucky enough to hold Green Bay Packers tickets the chance to witness some truly
historic wins over the past nine decades. The team's last winning Super Bowl took
place in the 2010 season. With a 10-6 record for the regular season, fans with Green
Bay Packers tickets were thrilled by the post season performance of the team as the Packers
went on to win victories over the Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons and their storied
rivals the Chicago Bears to win Super Bowl XLV.
Lambeau Field has been the home of the Packers
since its opening in September of 1957. With construction totaling $373 million, a series of renovations
in 2003, and again in 2012, afforded holders of Green Bay Packers tickets and fans
access to all kinds of modern features and conveniences. Green Bay Packers
tickets remain a hot item for fans, and even with 73,000 total seats, they can
be very difficult to come by. Green Bay Packers tickets have sold out every
season since 1960, and over 80,000 fans remain on the waiting list for the chance
to purchase their own. In 2007, the stadium was voted the top NFL stadium in game-
day atmosphere and was considered the stadium that offered fans the best experience according to an online
Sports Illustrated poll.
Packers fans are renowned for their dedications. They pride themselves on
selling out Packers games since 1960. Green Bay Packers tickets enjoy a
degree of sales and demand that is the envy of other franchises, as fans clamor for the
chance to cheer on their beloved Packers. Each season sees the team being ranked as
one of the most popular within the NFL, a statistic that fans of the Packers are all too
aware of. Each season the team hosts a series of intra-squad scrimmage matches in
a ritual known to fans as "Family Night". Family Night has been a chance for fans to
witness a spectacle that sold some 60,000 Green Bay Packers tickets through 2004 and
2005. In 2008, the Packers were voted as having the support of a fan base that was
second to only the Pittsburgh Steelers by an ESPN poll, a result that was originally a
tie, broken only by ESPN's owner, himself a Pittsburgh native.
12-4-12: It has been an up and down season through 12 games for the Green Bay Packers and they currently sit and 8-4 in first place. With three of their four remaining games against their own division the Packers will be able to control their own destiny heading into the playoffs. Up next for them is the Detroit Lions who they will play in Green Bay. Two weeks ago Green Bay beat the Lions in Detroit by a score of 24-20 so expect the Lions to have revenge on their minds.
1-9-13: As the Packers gear up for a week 1 rematch with the 49ers in the bay area, they seemed to tighten up the ship toward the end of the season. Behind MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers they finished the year at 11-5 and won the NFC North Division. After handling the Vikings who were without their starting quarterback, they face a much stiffer test with San Francisco. Rodgers will need all of his weapons in tact if the Packers want to steal this win on the road. The first meeting between the two teams resulted in a 49er win 30-22. Look for Rodgers to seriously air it out against the 49ers because the run game has been pretty nonexistent all year.
