100 Seasons of the Green Bay Packers
Ten decades have passed since the Green Bay Packers were first organized at a meeting in downtown Green Bay. Since that August day in 1919, the team’s enduring success has become one of the greatest stories in sports history.
Over the course of 100 years, the franchise has given fans plenty to celebrate, with 13 world championships, 25 Pro Football Hall of Famers and a beloved home, Lambeau Field. As the team embarks on its centennial season in 2018, the Packers are inviting fans to join the team in recognizing this historic milestone with “100 Seasons.”
A century in the making, 100 Seasons is the epic, 16-month celebration of the Packers’ rich history, which will be capped by the franchise’s 100th birthday on Aug. 11, 2019. A wide variety of events and activities will kick off over the next several months, with fans and community members invited to join in the numerous festivities.
