Lambeau Field History
There is arguably no football stadium more easily recognizable or better known than Lambeau
Field, home of the NFL's Green Bay Packers. The stadium first opened in 1957 and has been home to some of the most memorable
games and athletes in NFL history. The venue was first known as New City Stadium but was renamed in honor of former Packers
player, founder, and coach Curly Lambeau in 1965. A 2013 renovation to Lambeau Field made it the biggest stadium in all of
Wisconsin and the third largest in terms of seating capacity in the NFL. The game day experience at Lambeau Field is unparalleled
in the NFL and many die-hard NFL fans make the Pilgrimage to Green Bay simply to visit the legendary stadium. Getting tickets
