NFL Commissoner Roger Goodell Impressed By Plans To Expand Lambeau Field
Published September 9, 2011
ROCK ON: In Green Bay, Richard Ryman noted the "big-party atmosphere infusing the area" around Lambeau Field before Thursday night's Saints-Packers season opener is something the Packers "would like to see" more often throughout the year. Talk of a Titletown Entertainment District "has been swirling since the renovation of Lambeau Field in 2003, but there are no definitive plans as yet." The Packers "are spending $143 million to expand Lambeau Field by 6,600 seats, add new entrances and make other improvements, and have talked of developing the east parking lot." But for now, the team "is focusing on the recently announced project." The Packers have said that "development outside the boundaries of Lambeau Field, even on land the team owns, will rely in part on collaboration with Green Bay, Ashwaubenon and Brown County" (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE, 9/8).
