The Green Bay Packers are a member of the National Football League (NFL), an American professional football league. On August 11, 1919, it was founded by Earl “Curly” Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun, two former rivals in high school football. Lambeau requested funding for uniforms from his work, the meatpacking business Indian Packing Company.
He received $500 for gear and clothing in return for the squad using his name. More than any other NFL club, the Green Bay Packers have participated in events in their community. In August 1921, the Packers received a franchise from the American Professional Football Association, a brand-new national professional football league that had just been formed the year before.
In January 2008, the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants played in the city’s first NFC Championship game in ten years. In 2021, the Packers won the NFC North Division for the second consecutive year. The Packers’ following is highly fervent. Since 1960, Green Bay’s preseason, regular season, and postseason games have all been sold out regardless of the team’s performance.
The Packers frequently rank among the most favored NFL teams despite having by far the smallest local TV market. The waiting list for season tickets is one of the largest in professional sports, with 86,000 names and more seats than Lambeau Field.
