NFL Approves Packers’ Funding Request
Posted By Sports Talk Florida On October 23, 2012 @ 4:28 pm In NFL | No Comments
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Tuesday that league owners have approved the Packers’ request for $58 million to help renovate Lambeau Field.
The Packers are in the process of adding about 7,000 seats in the south end zone and have already installed a new sound system, video boards and an entrance. The team’s recent stock sale raised $67 million for the $143 million renovation. The NFL’s contribution will help pay the balance.
San Francisco is the first team receiving money from the program for construction of a new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
