Fans celebrate 100 years of the Green and Gold

By Heather Graves

GREEN BAY – Only in Green Bay would thousands wait in line for a chance to own their very own Lambeau Field grass seeds – but that’s Green Bay Packers fans for you.

And boy did the fans represent.

Thousands of die-hard cheeseheads, decked out in their green and gold attire, headed to Lambeau Field Sunday, Aug. 11, for the Green Bay Packers 100th birthday celebration – the culmination of the team’s first 100 seasons.

The line of fans circled the building as folks lined up to be one of the first 5,000 fans into the atrium to receive packets containing the same grass seeds used on Lambeau Field.

And if the seeds weren’t enough, one in every 50 packets were autographed by either Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Kenny Clark, Jaire Alexander, Blake Martinez, Head Coach Matt LaFleur, General Manager Brian Gutekunst or Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.

Don’t despair if you weren’t able to make it to the birthday bash – fans can still get their hands on a seed packet.

The Packers Pro Shop have them for sale for $5 in-store or online.

All the proceeds from seed packet purchases will go directly to the American Red Cross.

The celebration didn’t stop there.

The event also featured cupcakes courtesy of Festival Foods, birthday hats and a variety of giveaways and prizes, including special commemorative items to honor 100 seasons of the Packers such as drawstrings bags, pens, bracelets, necklaces and lunch boxes.

Fans also got a public screening of the first episode of the “Legacy” documentary, which chronicles the first decade of the team’s history.

The documentary will be released in-full later this year.

Fans can learn more and register their seed packets online at packers.com/100seeds to see where the seeds are growing all over the country.
