The Green Bay Packers are an American football team that is based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers are a member of the National Football Conference (NFC) North division of the National Football League (NFL).



It is the NFL’s third-oldest franchise, having been founded in 1919, and the United States’ only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team.

The Packers are the last of the so-called “small town teams” that dominated the NFL in its early years in the 1920s and 1930s. Earl “Curly” Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun founded the franchise in 1919, but it can be traced back to prior semi-professional teams in Green Bay dating back to 1896.



The Packers were given a franchise in the American Professional Football Association (APFA), a new national pro football league that had been created the previous year, on August 27, 1921. A year later, the APFA was renamed the National Football League.

Financial problems hampered the team, and it was forced to surrender the franchise within a year before Lambeau found new financial sponsors and reclaimed it the following year. The Green Bay Football Corporation was founded by these Hungry Five backers.
