Packers’ stock now available for purchase in Canada

The Packers officially are going international.

The only team that hasn’t played a regular-season game outside the United States (there are rumblings that they’ll “host” a 2022 game in Germany), the Packers will make the currently ongoing sale of their stock available to fans in Canada.

“Upon announcing our sale in the United States, we received immediate interest from Packers fans in Canada who were hopeful the offering would be available there,” Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said in a release. “We have now clarified the regulatory requirements in Canada and are excited to officially offer ownership to our Canadian fans.”

We’ve heard from multiple fans in the UK who would like to purchase Packers stock. However, the franchise has been unable to secure the appropriate approval for the program in countries other than the United States and Canada.

As to the Canadian shareholders, Josh Alper of PFT has raised an interesting point. If/when the Commissioner tries to fine a north-of-the-border “owner” for criticizing the NFL or one of its teams, perhaps the shareholder can claim diplomatic immunity.

  1. Everyone from pole to pole wants a piece of the legendary Green Bay Packers. If Packer stock were made available to the nomadic tribes of Mongolia, they’d be all over it.

  2. As part owner of the Green Bay Packers, I’ve tabled a proposal to move the team to Winnipeg.

  3. Why not? If you want to buy it why not sell it? This is still far better than taxing a city regardless if you like the team or not.

  4. Here: own this piece of paper! Congrats, sucker

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    The Packers did not tax Brown County. The Packers didn’t tax anybody.

  8. The Packers say income generated by the 2003 renovation allowed them to renovate Lambeau Field yet again, adding more than 7,000 seats, new high-definition scoreboards, a new Pro Shop, new gates and other amenities, and a new Packers Hall of Fame and Atrium restaurant. They built the Johnsonville Tailgate Village and replaced turf on the fields. Concourse renovation is ongoing. The cost of those projects was $312 million and counting, all of it paid for without public money.

    It’s also available on eBay. Check it out!
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    No it isn’t. I did check it out. All I could find was laser-etched photocopies and other attempts at rip-offs. I’m not surprised you omitted that truth.. However, I did find one original from 1980 asking $2,400.00 US. Have at it.
