In terms of population the city of Green Bay is barely a blip on the map compared to sports markets like New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Detroit, Dallas and Indianapolis. Even Jacksonville, Florida—home of the hapless Jaguars—has a population eight times greater than Green Bay. So how do you explain 70,000-plus fans at Lambeau Field for every Packers home game? It’s pretty simple. This “blip on the map” city has an address that rivals Times Square.
Welcome to Titletown, USA.
