The Packers have always had a special relationship with the community that supports them, but Packers fans hadn't been able to leave their mark on the hallowed grounds of Lambeau Field until now.
Tuesday, the Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District and the Green Bay Packers announced a commemorative brick and tile program that will link team and its fans like never before.
"We're giving Packers fans in this state and across the country a chance to be a permanent part of what I think is the very best stadium in the country," Packers President/CEO Bob Harlan said.
For as little as $75, Packers fans can purchase a personalized brick that will be installed outside the north end of Lambeau Field. Tiles, to be installed within the Lambeau Field Atrium, start as low as $100.
Doing more than add to Lambeau Field experience, revenue from the Packers Brick and Tile Program will help alleviate the tax burden accepted by Brown County residents with the passing of the stadium referendum in 2000.
"It's a very exciting moment for us, said John Jones, Packers executive vice president and chief operating officer. "At the same time that the historic renovation will be marked by these bricks and tiles, bearing the names of our fans and their loved ones, it will also help reduce the amount of tax dollars that are necessary to fund the project."
Bricks and tiles can include the official Packers logo, plus a message of the buyer's choosing.
Corporations can consider purchasing a 16x16-inch multi-brick display to promote their business.
Replicas are also available for Packers fans to display proudly at home.
