One of the main reasons why Green Bay Packers tickets are so hard to come by is because their level of playing has always been a cut above the rest. The Packers currently hold the NFL record for most League championship wins. They have also won the first two AFL-NFL championship games that were held after the big merger. Add three more straight NFL titles and by their 1992 season, they had 13 non-losing seasons in a row, with their worst season record being 8-8 in 1999.
Even though the Packers have the smallest TV markets in the NFL, they have one of the largest fan bases in the League. The Cheese heads take their Green Bay Packers tickets and their loyalty very seriously. On September 29, 1957, the fans bought their very first Green Bay Packer tickets, advertising admission into their long awaited City Stadium. Every single Packers game held at Lambeau Field since 1960 has been sold out and the team has the distinction of having the longest waiting list for season tickets, with the 2007 figures touching 74,000. The waiting list is currently about 35 years so it is not uncommon for fans to add their Packers season tickets to their wills or even place newborn children on the waiting list.
The opening night game against the Minnesota Vikings on September 8th, 2008, was initially suppose to be ‘Brett Favre Night,' where the club would retire the jersey of the future Hall of Famer and include his picture on the front of the tickets. Not long after Favre announced what would be a short-lived retirement, the Packers designed and ordered the printing of their 2008 game tickets. Like many NFL teams, the Packers have turned their game tickets into collector's items with special designs commemorating a specific moment, personality or season. While ticket prices aren't nearly selling for what they would have if Favre had kept his retirement promise, the absence of Favre has meant tickets to any of the Packers games are still relatively affordable for all fans through brokers like Ticket King.
A Green Bay Packer ticket admits fans to more than just seats; it invites them to become part of a living legacy!
