The Green Bay Packers are a legendary force in the charming town of Green Bay. The team was originally formed in 1919, and is one of the oldest NFL franchises still in existence today. With 13 league championships, including 4 Superbowl titles, the Green Bay Packers are the winningest team in NFL history. With such an inspiring legacy, it’s no wonder that Green Bay Packer football is such a major part of the culture in Green Bay. The summer training camps are a wonderful way for fans to join in the fun and to kick off the football season.
The Green Bay Packer training camp takes place on Ray Nitschke Field, which opened in 2009, and Clarke Hinkle Field. At Nitschke Field, there is seating for approximately 1,500 fans to enjoy the practices. The gates open 90 minutes before practices, and stay open for about 30 minutes after practice. This year, the popular Green Bay Packers Family Night occurs on August 8th at Lambeau Field. There will be a picnic in the parking lot in the afternoon preceeding this event, followed by various activities and on-field drills, the traditional “Jersey Off Our Backs” promotion, and fireworks to end the evening.
