The story and tradition of one of the oldest football stadiums in NFL betting history is celebrated today in the frozen tundra of Green Bay, Wisconsin, where eight Sunday’s a year the Packers take to the field for regular season home games. One of the most distinct and unique stadiums in the NFL, Lambeau Field has been the home of the Packers since 1957, when it was recognized as City Stadium. The new City Stadium replaced the old City Stadium as the home for the Green Bay football team, and after long-time head coach Curly Lambeau passed away in 1964, the stadium was renamed after him. There isn’t much else in terms of sports betting venues in that area of Wisconsin, and that only adds to the prestige and allure of the legendary Lambeau Field.
The second-largest stadium in all of Wisconsin behind Camp Randall Stadium on the college campus, Lambeau Field can sit up to 73,094 on game-day. The Kentucky bluegrass surface is reinforced with Grassmaster, and while the construction of the stadium at the time was under $1 million ($4.63 million in 2012), more than $295 million in renovations have been made to the stadium ever since. There aren’t many other 5Dimes teams that have the same advantage playing at home as Green Bay does, and it’s their legendary stadium that remains such a historic site for a Packers’ team that has established itself as a perennial Super Bowl contender for years to come.
