When it comes to ranking NFL stadiums on history, legacy, and tradition, Green Bay Packers ticket buyers already know one thing: there’s Lambeau Field, and then there’s everywhere else.
Open to Packers fans since 1957, Lambeau’s reputation as the league’s ‘Frozen Tundra’ is well-earned. The building has been the site of NFL championship teams and bone-numbingly cold temperatures. Some famous games (such as “The Ice Bowl”) were played with the thermometers hitting sub-zero numbers.
Lambeau is the last remaining bowl seating stadium in the league, lending a further sense of history and uniqueness to every Sunday’s proceedings. Those cheeseheads are a pretty popular attraction in the stands as well.
Although Lambeau is an old stadium, it’s by no means a decrepit one. The place underwent huge renovations in 2013 to keep the in-game viewing experience as hassle free and innovative as possible. 7,000 new seats were added to one of the stadium’s end zones, 1,600 of which were club and terrace suites. With a capacity of 80,735, Lambeau is one of the three largest venues in the NFL.
