The Green Bay Packers have 81,000 people on their season-ticket waiting list, and Lambeau Field has a maximum capacity of 72,928. So even if all the season-ticket holders were to give up their seats, there still wouldn’t be enough room for everyone who would want to take their places.
With that in mind, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to add some seats to Lambeau Field — something the Packers are reportedly considering.
The Associated Press reports that the Packers will hold focus groups in Milwaukee and Green Bay to discuss expanding Lambeau Field. The Packers sent an invitation to certain fans asking them to share “thoughts and opinions on possible new seating opportunities at an expanded Lambeau Field.”
That doesn’t necessarily mean an expansion is going to happen any time soon, however, as a Packers spokesman said no plans to make changes to Lambeau Field are imminent.
Lambeau’s most recent expansion was completed in 2003.
