GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - In what many fans consider the unofficial kickoff to the football season, thousands of Green Bay Packers Shareholders took part in their 2013 annual meeting.
Officials expected about 17,000 people to attend the event, where they got a rundown of last season while looking ahead at the future.
The rosy financial report showed that the NFL's lone publicly-owned team set new records for revenues, operating profit and net income the Fiscal Year ending March 31, 2013.
General Manager Ted Thompson highlighted the on-field accomplishments from last season, when the Packers won their second-straight NFC North title.
The meeting lasted nearly two hours. Then after, shareholders and their guests were able to tour the new South End Zone area. It was the final part of the $143 million renovation and expansion of Lambeau Field.
The new seats allowed Lambeau to become the third-largest stadium capacity in the NFL with 80,750 seats.
