Packers to hold next shareholder meeting July 24

By  | 

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Packers say July 24 is the date of their next annual shareholders' meeting at Lambeau Field.

Team President Mark Murphy says shareholders will see the nearly completed south end zone, and also see how their support has allowed the Packers to improve their stadium.

This year shareholders will be allowed to bring a guest. If the shares are held jointly, such as by a married couple, up to four admissions can be requested.

The formal notice will be sent in about six weeks. The meeting takes place rain or shine.

Fans become shareholders by buying shares of stock during one of the team's infrequent stock sales. The last one was early last year, when more than 268,000 people bought shares for $250 apiece.
