Green Bay is Titletown

According to Forbes, Green Bay is the NFL’s smallest market with a metro population of over 300,000. Not a huge market, but did you know that only 16 percent of that population are NOT Green Bay fans. The Packers also have social media on their side with over 4 million backers on Facebook and over 700,000 on Twitter. Of course, it also helps that the Packers have an NFL record of 13 championships, easily making them #1 in the eyes of the league when it comes to having the best fandom around.

The Green Bay Packers’ 13 NFL championships are the most in league history, four more than the Chicago Bears’ nine.

They won their first three titles (1929-31) by league standing (there were no playoffs until 1933). They’ve won 10 more since, including three in a row from 1965-67.

They won the first two Super Bowls (in 1966 and ’67) and triumphed again in 1996 and 2010.

Hell, the Packers even have a small city named Titletown District right next to Lambeau Field.

Green Bay is Titletown and they deserve that name, and whoever tries to steal it is dead wrong. *cough* Boston *cough*

  1. I assume that the NFL-AFL merger is retroactive back to 1966, even though it did not take effect until 1970. The “Ice Bowl” would nowadays would be known as the 1967 NFC Championship Game for that matter!
