Action Packed Football With Green Bay Packers Tickets

By: Al Terry

Action-packed football doesn't come any more exciting than Green Bay Packers tickets. The Packers have been packing in football stadiums for a very long time and their fan base, affectionately known as Cheeseheads, can be found right across the country. For any football enthusiast, Green Bay Packers tickets are a treat to see some really special football.

The Green Bay Packers play for the National Football League and also play under the National Football Conference and the NFC North. They play their home games at Lambeau Field and have an impressive number of championship wins to their name. The Packers have won twelve League championships, three Super Bowls, eighteen Division titles and eight Conference championship titles.

Just Another Small Town Team

It's hard to believe that a powerhouse like the Green Bay Packers were once just a small town team. In fact, the Packers are the last of the 'small town teams' and the oldest team name that is still in use in the NFL. The Packers officially joined the professional league in 1921 and have played consistently throughout their career.

One of the reasons why Green Bay Packers tickets are so hard to come by is because their level of playing is a cut above the rest. The Packers currently hold the NFL record for most League championship wins. They have also won the first two AFL-NFL championship games that were held after the big merger. They have won three straight NFL titles two times in a row and by their 1992 season, they had 13 non-losing seasons in a row with their worst season record being 8-8 in 1999.

Cheeseheads Unite

If you think that those Green Bay Packers tickets are going to be easy to come by, you better think again. Even though the Packers have the smallest TV markets in the NFL, they have one of the largest fan bases in the League. These fans are known as Cheeseheads, a name which comes from the signature hats they wear which look like triangular blocks of cheese. The name was initially used as an insult but has since turned into something totally different.

The Cheeseheads take their Green Bay Packers tickets and their loyalty very seriously. Every single Packers game held at Lambeau Field since 1960 has been sold out and the team has the distinction of having the longest waiting list for season tickets, with the 2007 figures touching 74000. The waiting list is currently about 35 years so it is not uncommon for fans to bequeath Packers season tickets in their wills or even place newborn children on the waiting list.

The Packers also have a number of traditions that are still followed today, including the practice of allowing young Packers' fans to let the players ride their bikes from the locker room to the field. This was started many years ago to strengthen the relationships between young fans and the players. The Lambeau Leap is also followed today, which consists of a player leaping into the end zone after scoring a touchdown to be patted on the back by fans. You can watch the Packers play by ordering Green Bay Packers tickets online via an authorized ticket vendor.
