The annual Packers shareholders' meeting will be held Wednesday, July 19, inside Lambeau Field, starting at 9 a.m. The meeting will be open to ticketed shareholders, plus one guest, and will take place rain or shine.
The event returns to the historic stadium, where it was held the first two years after the 1997-98 stock sale (1998, '99), because more than 5,000 stockholders were turned away from last year's meeting when the nearby Resch Center was deemed to have met its capacity. By utilizing Lambeau Field, every shareholder who wants to attend will have the opportunity to do so.
This year's special offering for shareholders features a tour through the team's locker room and football facilities. Many shareholders have expressed an interest in seeing the "heart and soul" of the football facilities, especially since the team moved into the redeveloped Lambeau Field. Now they'll see the inner sanctum.
Due to the potential number of attendees at this year's meeting, shareholders who choose to take the tour should expect a lengthy wait. To help minimize the wait, tours will be offered on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 18, in addition to Wednesday, July 19, after the meeting. To help accommodate the event, the Lambeau Field Atrium will be open only to shareholders on Wednesday, July 19. Restaurants and eateries will be open and additional activities will be available. In addition to restaurants and restrooms available in the Atrium, concessions and restrooms will be open in the stadium concourse.
Similar offerings have been on the agenda at recent meetings, including a tour of Don Hutson Center, a walk around the playing surface in Lambeau Field and a special shareholders-only training camp practice.
More detailed information about the meeting will be included in proxies sent to shareholders at the end of May.
