Green Bay Packers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Green Bay Packers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They are currently members of the Northern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The team is sometimes affectionately referred to as simply 'The Pack'.

The Packers are the last remaining example of the 'small town teams' that comprised a majority of the NFL during the 1920s. Green Bay is by far the smallest media market to be the home of a North American major professional sports league (though their fanbase includes Milwaukee, the rest of Wisconsin, and beyond).

Founded in 1919, the Packers joined the NFL in 1921 during the league's second season. Today, the team holds the record for most NFL league championships with 12: nine NFL Championships prior to the Super Bowl era, Super Bowl I, Super Bowl II, and Super Bowl XXXI. The team also holds the distinction of winning the first two AFL-NFL Championship Games that were held before the AFL-NFL Merger, later referred to as Super Bowl I and II.

The Packers are currently the only publicly owned major league level professional sports team in the United States. Currently, a total of 4,749,925 shares are owned by 111,921 stockholders - none of whom receives any dividend"
