About Lambeau Field

The History of Lambeau Field
Opened in 1957 with the name City Stadium, Lambeau Field was built specifically to replace the team’s old digs at East High School’s old football field. That’s right, the winningest NFL team ever used to play on a high school field. How’s that for humble beginnings?
Speaking of humble beginnings, the stadium was renamed Lambeau Field in honor of good old’ Curly Lambeau in 1965 just months after his death. Too bad they couldn’t have done it before he died. Anyway, it’s been known as Lambeau Field ever since, and that’s not gonna change any time soon.
Not only that, but with all the barrels of cash the Packers rake in this football field has been renovated within an inch of its life, so it’s not like you’ll be sitting in 1957-era bleachers. You and 81,000 of your closest friends will be in for a thoroughly modern experience.
