Green Bay Community: The Real Packer Backers

The stadium known now as Lambeau Field was most definitely not build or even planned in a day. This feat to build the then New City Stadium took Packer Board Members, Government approval, and large community support. Before building could start, many hours went into planning on where the new stadium would go and how much everything would cost. There was no doubt that wherever the stadium was placed, the economic impact on the surrounding businesses would greatly increase. Therefore, many fought for the position of whether the stadium would be built on the east or the west side of Green Bay, but the debate was so close that plans were written for both locations. Once the location was chosen, the Packers had to figure out how to pay for this new stadium, with this problem the Packers looked to the Green Bay community for support.
