Lambeau exhibition presents opportunity for local tourism and soccer community

Even if you cannot get a ticket to see two of the world’s top soccer teams take the pitch at Lambeau Field this summer, you are still likely to see the match’s impact locally. In the wake of reports of a significant event coming to Lambeau Field announced by the organization, Packers Twitter mainstay Kyle Cousineau shared the news that Manchester City of the English Premier League and Bayern Munich of the Bundesliga would play an exhibition match at the stadium. The event would follow the Packers’ tradition of having at least one non-NFL event every year, including college football games and concerts. The team has yet to confirm the match officially, but the rumored date is July 23rd. Destination Door County’s Jon Jarosh wishes the match would have been in June when the area is not in the thick of tourism season. He is excited about what the match could mean for the area since it could draw visitors from across the country and around the world.

Sturgeon Bay High School Soccer coach Todd Maas knows how much the sport has grown in recent years, especially since his Clippers teams have brought home a pair of state championships. Even though he is a Manchester United fan, he says it is a dream come true to see some of the world’s best teams up close.

Discover Green Bay estimates that Packers home games bring in approximately $15 million of economic activity to the region. The impact of this game on the area could rival what was seen for the LSU/Wisconsin game in 2016 when Lambeau Field was filled with primarily out-of-town fans.
