By comparison, the typical NFL city is populated in the millions or higher hundred-thousands. .The Packers, however, have long had a large following throughout Wisconsin and parts of the Midwest; in fact, for decades, the Packers played four (one pre-season, three regular-season) home games each year in Milwaukee, first at the State Fair Park fairgrounds, then at Milwaukee County Stadium.^ Season First Game Played September 14, 1919 .

^ After winning four of their first five games at home the Packers struggle to a 6-5-1 season playing their final 6 games on the road.

^ However this time the Packers would be the host team, playing at the State Fair Grounds in Milwaukee.

The Packers did not move their entire home schedule to Green Bay until 1995.
.County Stadium's replacement, Miller Park, then being planned, was always intended to be a baseball-only stadium instead of a multipurpose stadium.^ With their old megshift stadium being torn down to make way for a High School the Packers were forced to move to an old baseball stadium called Bellevue Park.

Based on the original "Articles of Incorporation for the (then) Green Bay Football Corporation" put into place in 1923, if the Packers franchise were to have been sold, after the payment of all expenses, any remaining money would go to the Sullivan Post of the American Legion in order to build "a proper soldier's memorial." This stipulation was enacted to ensure the club remained in Green Bay and that there could never be any financial enhancement for the shareholders. .At the November 1997 annual meeting, shareholders voted to change the beneficiary from the Sullivan-Wallen Post to the Green Bay Packers Foundation, which makes donations to many charities and institutions throughout Wisconsin.^ Green Bay Packers Jerseys (28) .

.He was given $500 for uniforms and equipment, on condition that the team be named for its sponsor (a similar event would occur the following year with the Decatur Staleys, who later became the Chicago Bears).^ For Phil Bengttson the man who replaced him it became too much to bear and after a 6-8 season he would resign.

Stadium history

Lambeau Field after its 2003 renovation
.After their early seasons at Bellevue Park and Hagemeister Park, the Packers played home games in City Stadium from 1925 to 1956. The team won its first 6 NFL world championships while calling City Stadium its home.^ Season First Game Played September 14, 1919 .

^ The Packers played their first league game at Hagemeister Park on October 23rd, as the Packers beat the Minneapolis Marines 7-6.

^ After winning four of their first five games at home the Packers struggle to a 6-5-1 season playing their final 6 games on the road.

.Once the NFL threatened to move the franchise to Milwaukee if stadium conditions were not improved in Green Bay, the city responded by building a modern facility for the Packers, open in time for the 1957 season.^ Opened in 1957 as City Stadium, it replaced the original City Stadium as the Packers' home field.

.By the 1960s, threat of an American Football League franchise in Milwaukee prompted the Packers to stay, including scheduling a Western Conference Playoff in 1967.

^ Philadelphia’s schedule is brutal from here on out, but essentially control their own destiny with games against Dallas, Atlanta, and New York remaining.

.In March 2009, the Packers indicated that the team still intends to retire Favre's number, but due to the circumstances surrounding his departure from the team, no timeline had been set.^ Jets team executives and coach Rex Ryan confirmed the retirement in a statement, saying they talked to Favre on Wednesday morning about his decision.

^ In an e-mail to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Favre indicated he had no regrets about finishing his career with the Jets rather than with the Green Bay Packers franchise he represented for his previous 16 NFL seasons.

^ Many times the Packers started with good field position due to their special teams or their defense, but they were unable to take advantage of it.
