Green Bay is known for two things - football and cheese. The Green Bay Packers exemplify the former, while their fans are known by the latter, with both groups using Lambeau Field parking to reach their home and their shrine. Lambeau Field opened in September of 1957, replacing City Stadium. The stadium was renovated in 2012, which brought High-Def scoreboards, a new sound system, more seating, heated bleacher areas, and Mitsubishi Diamond Vision Video boards. Further renovation is scheduled for 2013-’15, which will involve moving both the Packers Hall of Fame, the Curly’s Pub restaurant and the Pro Shop, in addition to a new east side entrance, new player facilities and more. Lambeau has a seating capacity of 80,750, which sounds like a lot until one realizes how popular the Green Bay Packers are - there are 86,000 fans on the waiting list for season tickets, exceeding the total number of seats at Lambeau! While this is very good for generating revenue for the City of Green Bay, it is not so good for fans who don’t book a Packers parking spot in advance. For the Cheesehead who plans ahead, a Lambeau Field parking spot can be booked in ahead of time by using ParkWhiz.
The Packers have two great things going for them - they are both one of the oldest and most successful teams in the NFL. While either aspect would be a great boon for any team, for Green Bay it is a windfall to the economy with the Packers parking the ball for over 90 years. The Packers won the Super Bowl in 1996 and 2010, in addition to winning the AFL-NFLChampionship in 1966 and 1967. Prior to the merger of the AFL and NFL, the Packers won the NFL Championship in 1929-31, 1936, 1939, 1944, 1961-62 and 1965-67. The Stadium’s name comes from Earl Louis “Curly” Lambeau, a man who not only played for the Green Bay Packers, but acted as its founder and first coach, which under his tutelage won six NFL championships. The Green Bay Packers are unique among all other teams in the NFL in terms of their ownership; it is a community-owned franchise rather than under the ownership of a company or a small group of people. One thing you can bet on is that while the Green Bay Packers will stay in Green Bay, Lambeau Field parking spaces will not stay empty. The wise fan plans ahead, putting their faith not only in the Packers but in ParkWhiz, which can help you book a Lambeau Field parking spot, so you still won’t be looking for a place when “Go! Pack Go!” plays from the new sound system.
ParkWhiz makes Green Bay Packers parking easy; all you have to do is find the game that you have a ticket for, pay a small fee, book your parking spot and print your Lambeau Field parking pass in the convenience of your home. When you bring your ParkWhiz parking pass with you, you can slide into your Packers parking place with ease, worrying only about how successful the Packers will be this year instead of where you will park.
