PACKERS WON'T RENEW LEASE AT COUNTY STADIUM
Published October 13, 1994
Packers President Bob Harlan said the team won't renew its lease at Milwaukee County Stadium, where the team has played part of its football schedule since 1932. The team will play a full schedule at Lambeau Field and "take full advantage" of the luxury boxes and financial stability of their own facility. County Stadium lacks luxury skybox seating, and Harlan said the Packers have lost $15M playing in Milwaukee since 1985 and "would lose another $12M in the next four years." The 46,000 season-ticket holders at County Stadium will be offered season-ticket packages at Lambeau Field that will include an exhibition game and two regular season games. Harlan: "We are abandoning our ballpark, but we are not abandoning our fans." Brewers Owner Bud Selig said the Packers' move will help both clubs in the long run, as a baseball-only park in Milwaukee will reduce the cost of a new facility (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/13).
