History

The Green Bay Packers are members of the NFL’s National Football Conference and are one of the league’s oldest and most storied franchises. The club was founded in 1919 by Curley Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun. The team was called the Packers after the India Packing Company, who helped provide funding to Lambeau, who was an employee of the company.

In 1921, the Packers joined the newly formed American Pro Football Association, making the club a professional team. Due to financial struggles, the team was backed by a group of Green Bay businessmen known as the “Hungry Five.” The group formed the Green Bay Football corporation, which continues to own and operate the club today. The Packers are the only pro sports team in North America to be publicly owned and operated.

The Packers have been a very consistent team and have won thirteen league championships -- the most in NFL history. During the 1960’s, the team won five titles between '65 and '67, including the first two Super Bowls ever played. During this time, the team was led by head coach Vince Lombardi and star quarterback Bart Starr. The team also moved from their original home stadium (City Field) into New City Field, which was later renamed Lambeau Field when Curly Lambeau passed away. Lombardi retired from coaching after the 1967 season, having led the Packers to winning campaigns in all eight seasons in which he was coach. When Lombardi passed away in 1970, the NFL named the Super Bowl Trophy after him. It was also Lombardi that introduced the famous letter “G” which the Packers wear on their helmets.

The club struggled after the departure of Lombardi up until the mid 1990’s. However, when QB Brett Favre emerged as one of the top pivots of all time, the Packers rose up as a dominant NFL club during the ‘90s. It was in 1995 that the club stopped playing at least one of its home games at Milwaukee County Stadium. This was mainly due to a larger capacity and luxury boxes available at Lambeau Field. In 1996, the Packers won the Super Bowl for their first championship since 1967. In 2010 with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, the Packers claimed another Super Bowl victory. With that win, the Packers joined the Steelers, Cowboys, and 49ers as the only NFL teams to win four Super Bowls. The Giants would join this group the following year.
