The Packers Gold Package and Green Package

The NFL released its 2022 game schedule on May 12th which allowed the Packers to determine the home opponents for their respective green and gold packages. The background of these ticket packages goes back to the days when the Packers would play a few games a year in Milwaukee in an attempt to attract a larger fan base from Wisconsin’s largest city. The team sold season tickets for these few games to the “Milwaukee crowd” before all of the games were eventually moved to Lambeau. Despite every game being played in Green Bay these days, the Milwaukee crowds season tickets have remained in their hands and they are granted three games a year at Lambeau. This Milwaukee crowd in known as the Packers “Gold Package.”

The gold package makes up the crowd at the Packers second and fifth home games of every season. They also receive a home preseason game in three out of every four year (every odd number year and every other even number year). The “Green Package” makes up the remainder and majority of the preseason and regular season games as this is the crowd that historically attends the games in Lambeau.

With the release of the 2022 schedule on Thursday night, the Packers gold package/Milwaukee crowd will be in attendance when the Patriots come to town on October 2nd and when the Titans visit Lambeau on November 17th. The green package/Green Bay crowd will have the remainder of the teams home games this upcoming season. These two different ticket packages are very unique to the Packers and it stems from an attempt to market and grow the fanbase of the smallest market team in the NFL.
