Lambeau Field

Lambeau Field is the home stadium of the NFL's Green Bay Packers. It is located in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The stadium opened in 1957 as City Stadium, it replaced the original City Stadium as the Packers' home field. For that reason, it was also informally known as New City Stadium until 1965, when it was renamed in memory of Packers founder, player, and long-time head coach, Curly Lambeau, who had died earlier in the year.

The stadium's street address has been 1265 Lombardi Avenue since 1968, when Highland Avenue was renamed in honor of Vince Lombardi. It sits on a block bounded by Lombardi Avenue (north); Oneida Street (east); Stadium Drive and Valley View Road (south); and Ridge Road (west). The playing field at the stadium sits at an elevation of 640 feet (195 m) above sea level.

With a capacity of 73,094, Lambeau is the second largest stadium in the state of Wisconsin behind Camp Randall Stadium on the campus of the University of Wisconsin–Madison (80,321). It is the 2nd oldest stadium still in operation by the NFL, 2nd only to Soldier Field.

Famous quotes containing the word field:

    Hardly a book of human worth, be it heaven’s own secret, is honestly placed before the reader; it is either shunned, given a Periclean funeral oration in a hundred and fifty words, or interred in the potter’s field of the newspapers’ back pages.
    Edward Dahlberg (1900–1977)
