The Green Bay Packers’ season-ticket waiting list is so preposterously long that it almost seems like a waste of time even to put your name on it: Only 126 fans went from waiting list to season-ticket holders this year, while 83,881 names remain on the list.
But don’t tell Tina Dollar-Hibbard it was a waste of time for her father to put her name on the list 40 years ago. She was one of the 126 whose names were called this year, 16 years after her dad died.
“I need to decide who I am going to take with me,” she told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “I’ve had a lot of offers.”
But as the Press-Gazette notes, for every person who gets called, there are hundreds of fans who continue to wait. This year 99.6 percent of season-ticket holders renewed their tickets.
The Packers estimate fans who put their names on the list this year can expect to be called around 2045 or 2050. In the mean time, they’re looking to expand Lambeau Field to help shorten the waiting list. Maybe down to 75,000 names or so.
