Lambeau Field, a Mark on History The ground below is rattling to the thunderous beat of rambunctious spectators with the anticipation of the battle that is set to be fought on this very field! The senseless chaos ceases as a loud roar erupts from the stands as the Green Bay Packers emerge from the tunnel. “With 13 super bowl rings and 53 postseason appearances it’s easy to say that Green Bay is one of the most dominant teams in the NFL” (Packers team Records). The iconic team has many notable attributes that set them apart, but one of the most recognizable is there historic stadium, Lambeau Field.

A new upper concourse was added with ramps, elevators, and more restrooms. In addition, nearly 12,000 seats were added along the top of the stadium. This includes club seats and luxury suites.

This economic boost will benefit the team and the community as a whole. These renovations have caused a massive boost in revenue and continue to create new opportunities for fans and players. These renovations provide no reason for a new stadium to be constructed in the first
