Lambeau Field is an outdoor athletic stadium located in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It is the home field of the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) and opened in 1957 as City Stadium. It was renamed in August 1965 in memory of Packers founder, player, and long-time head coach, Earl “Curly” Lambeau. With a capacity of 81,441, Lambeau Field is the fifth-largest stadium in the NFL with standing room.

Lambeau Field has undergone several renovations over the years and is much enlarged since opening in 1957. The most recent renovation was a $295-million redevelopment that took 32 months and was completed on time and on budget. The “new” part of Lambeau was built like a donut around the existing seating bowl and the two structures were connected by rows of seats. The renovation also added underground parking for players and coaches, coaches’ offices on the ground level of the stadium to be nearer the players, expansion of the conditioning, rehab and instruction centre and renovation of concession stands in the Lambeau Field concourse.

Green Bay Packers Tickets

The Green Bay Packers sell their tickets via Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster is the official ticket outlet for the NFL.

For most teams, Ticketmaster sells tickets on behalf of the team and resells tickets on behalf of ticket sellers. You can tell the difference on the site as the Blue dots are tickets from the team themselves, and the pink dots are from verified sellers.

Here are links to the main ticket resale sites. Click on the link, which will open up a new window, and you can compare the prices on the different ticket resell sites, bearing in mind that the prices shown may have further selling platform fees added, so take time to read my tips to Buying Tickets in North America.

I recommend downloading the team’s Mobile App to your phone as it contains much Gameday information for the stadium.
