The Lambeau Bowl
One of Lambeau's special characteristics is its classic seating bowl, now exclusive to Green Bay. The bowl design, common in many traditional college football stadiums, remains virtually untouched following a $295-million stadium renovation. Did you know...
  • The original architectural firm, Somerville, Inc., favored the Lambeau construction site because it sloped, perfect for building a bowl.
  • The bowl's outstanding sightlines are generally credited to Dick Gustafson, who worked closely with John Somerville during the design phase.
  • Some of Gustafson's inspiration came from Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, where he went to college.
  • Despite seating more than 62,713 (including an additional 6,601 from the recent renovation), the bowl still offers the NFL's highest percentage of great seats. Somerville credits that intimacy to the fact that the stadium was the first in the world designed exclusively for pro football.
  • The original stadium district instructed Somerville to design a facility that could easily expand, and allow for offseason construction projects to be completed by August.
  • The first significant project came just one year after the stadium's opening campaign. Workers replaced the original wooden bleachers with aluminum benches before the 1958 season.
