Construction

The "new" part of Lambeau was built like a donut around the existing seating bowl. The two structures were connected by rows of seats.

It took more than 2.4-million work hours to redevelop Lambeau Field.

There are nearly 6.65-million feet of wiring and cabling in the new Lambeau.

More than 12,100 tons of steel was used for Lambeau's redevelopment.

The Miller Brewing Company entrance features a wall of glass measuring over 208' x 85'.

The "football field" outlined on the Atrium floor is directly in line with the actual football field. When you stand in the end zone area of the Atrium, you're standing in line with Lambeau's end zone!!

The two bronze statues in the Robert E. Harlan Plaza are of team founder Curly Lambeau and legendary coach Vince Lombardi.

Each bronze statue in the Robert E. Harlan Plaza weighs at least 2,000 pounds, is 14' tall, standing atop 3' of steps and a 4' base. (Lombardi weighs 2,000 pounds, Lambeau weighs 2,400 pounds)

Tickets

Packers games have been sold out, on a season-ticket basis, since 1960.

As a result of the redevelopment, 2,800 people have come off the season ticket waiting list. There are still more than 60,00 names on the list.

4,000 tickets per game go to Brown County residents - as a way of saying thank you for approving the referendum, which provided funding for the redevelopment.

This and that ...

The Packers have an estimated annual economic impact on Brown County of $144-million.
