Lambeau Field Board Seeks More Events, Clarification On Packers' Construction Plans

The agency controlling Lambeau Field wants the Packers “to be clear about its position on special events at the stadium,” according to Richard Ryman of the GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE. Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District Exec Dir Patrick Webb yesterday said, “The biggest issue we’ve had in this whole (lease) agreement is we haven’t had as many special events as people thought we’d have in the stadium bowl.” Ryman notes the “most notable exception was the Kenny Chesney concert in June 2011, which drew more than 45,000 people.” The Packers “begged off on any similar event this year because of construction adding seats and entrances to the stadium.” The team has said that it “plans to begin expansion of the Lambeau Field Atrium as soon as possible, which board members worried could lead to more delay.” Board member Ron Antonneau said that the “stadium is a community facility and people expect it to be used for such events.” Antonneau said, “We need to encourage them to be proactive. It’s important we do this because people loved (the Chesney) concert” (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE, 11/6).
