Head Coach: Mike McCarthy
The Green Bay Packers is a part of the league’s National Football Conference (NFC) North division. It is the third-oldest franchise in the NFL, making its first appearance in 1919. The Packers hold home games at the Lambeau Field and has been hosting home games in the stadium since 1957. The Packers are long-standing rivals of the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and Minnesota Vikings, who today is part of the NFL’s NFC North division, and were previously members of the NFC Central Division.
The Green Bay Packers are among the last few “small town teams” in the NFL. Established in 1919, the franchise traces its history back to other semi-pro teams in Green Bay dating back to 1896. Currently, the team has recorded 13 league championships–the most in NFL history–with nine pre-Super Bowl NFL titles, and four Super Bowl victories. The Packers won the first two Super Bowl events in 1967 and 1968. Furthermore, the Vince Lombardi Trophy is named after Packers’ coach Lombardi, who led the team to their first two Super Bowl titles.
