PACKERS MAY BE LEAVING COUNTY STADIUM
Published October 7, 1994
The Packers must decide in January on whether to renew the lease at County Stadium. The Packers play four games in Milwaukee, but lose an estimated $1.6M a game on ticket sales, higher rent and and a cut in concession revenue. Packers President Bob Harlan is holding off on a decision, waiting to see if Milwaukee builds a new stadium, but stadium plans are on hold until the baseball strike is settled. "The betting around Green Bay is that Harlan will not renew the lease," which would create a problem of what to do with the 48,000 season ticket holders in Milwaukee, "few of whom have tickets to Lambeau Field, which has a separate ticket list and is sold out for every game" (Paul Attner, THE SPORTING NEWS, 10/10 issue).
