GREEN BAY, Wisc. – Talk about a winning streak.
The Green Bay Packers set so many records on and off the field after winning the Super Bowl in February 2011, it’s hard to know where to begin. One way could be the team’s record-breaking financial results announced on Tuesday.
The NFL’s only publicly owned team recorded $42.7 million in net income last year. National revenue, local revenue, total profit from operations, net profit from operations and net income all were records. The Packers Hall of Fame had 156,000 visitors last year, and 137,000 people took Lambeau Field stadium tours, each besting previous highs in the 90,000s.
Over the winter, the Packers netted $64 million from a stock sale. The organization added 250,000 shareholders, tripling the number the team had before the sale.
