Lambeau Field
Green Bay, Wisconsin

Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay packers, is the longest tenured stadium in the National Football League.  Built in 1957, seating capacity as expanded over the years from 32,150 to its current 72,928.  Dedicated as City Stadium on Sept. 29, 1957, the team renamed the facility Lambeau Field following the death of E.L. "Curly" Lambeau, the Packers' founder and first coach.  Lambeau Field was rededicated on Sept. 7, 2003 following a 3 year renovation.  Lambeau Field easily ranks as one of the most recognized venues in all of sports.
