The possibility of Lambeau Field hosting the 2024 NFL Draft and other national events excites Door County tourism officials. Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy recently announced at the virtual shareholders meeting that the team is one of three finalists for the 2024 draft sessions. Murphy also says Lambeau Field is applying to host the Big Ten Championship game between 2023 and 2030. Jon Jarosh with Destination Door County says it's not known exactly what the economic impact would be from such events. Although, he says past experience shows visitors will be looking beyond Green Bay for places to see.
Door County and Green Bay hoped to pick up additional tourism business when U-W Madison and Notre Dame played at Lambeau Field this fall. That game has been tentatively rescheduled for 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
