Packers still have some stock for sale, eh
With nine days remaining in the stock sale of the Green Bay Packers, the team says roughly 17,000 shares remain.
The Packers made that announcement this morning while also making it known that the club has “clarified Canadian regulatory requirements” so that stock may now be sold to Packers fans living in Canada.
“Since launching our sale in the United States, we’ve received a lot of interest from our fans in Canada,” Packers president Mark Murphy said in a statement released by the team. “After receiving approval from the NFL, we have now clarified the regulatory requirements in Canada and are excited to offer ownership to our fans there.”
The cost of a share in Canada is US$250, with a US$35 handling charge per transaction. The remaining shares also continue to be available for purchases by U.S. residents with no change in terms applicable to those purchasers.
The Packers are using the profit raised in the stock sale to help pay for the $143 million expansion of Lambeau Field, which will include 6,700 additional seats, new video boards and a sound system and new gates.
