GREEN BAY, Wis. — Tradition went head-to-head with pocketbooks Thursday as Green Bay season-ticket holders struggled with a surcharge to help pay for renovations at Lambeau Field.
The Packers expect to raise $92.5 million through one-time seat fees once details for the payments are finalized.
Currently, fans with three-game packages will pay $600 a ticket. Fans with seven-game packages will pay $1,400 a ticket.
"It's absolutely gouging," said Arvin Schultz, who faces $5,600 in fees for four tickets to seats on the 30-yard line that his late father-in-law passed down after three decades.
