Packers will mull stadium expansion ideas with fans
The Packers have hired consultants to meet with focus groups in Green Bay and Milwaukee about the possibility of expanding the seating capacity of Lambeau Field, the NFL’s oldest continuously used stadium.
The south end of the stadium is open and it is possible that designs to put more butts in the seats could include that area. The stadium underwent a significant overhaul that was completed in 2003 at a cost of $295 million, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Invitations were sent to fans to get their input.
"We don't have anything specific that we are ready to discuss," team spokesman Aaron Popkey said.
Considering the massive season ticket waiting list the Packers have, and the fact that turnover on that list is minimal on an annual basis, finding a way to put more seats in the building would make good sense. The team lists capacity at 72,928.
