Updated for the 2017 NFL season - There are so many sports bars friendly to Green Bay Packers fans across the United States that I've listed 20! Ten in Wisconsin and another 10 around the country.
With a population of 100,355, Green Bay, Wisconsin, is surely the smallest city in the United States with a major league sports franchise.
Even the so-called “metropolitan area” of Green Bay has a mere 306,241 people. So how is this tiny city of one-tenth of a million able to hold unto a football powerhouse that has won 13 Super Bowls? The Green Bay Packers are unique in that the team is owned almost entirely by its fans.
Fans as Shareholders
More than 112,000 fans are currently co-owners of the team, which represents the city of Green Bay.
What is interesting about the Green Bay Packers is that the shares of its stock cannot be resold except back to the team at a fraction of the original price. Shares do not appreciate in value. No shareholder can own more than 200 shares – to prevent an individual from gaining control of the team. And there are no season ticket holder privileges.
As a lifelong Oakland Raiders fan – a team that left home once, returned, and now plans to leave town again – I must say, I'm green with envy.
Would love to own a piece of my Raiders – and keep them always in Oakland, where they were born, and where they rightfully belong.

The Green Bay Packers have fans all over the country. Many of the following sports bars are bona-fide Green Bay hangouts.
Others attract Green Bay Packers on game day. Bars sometimes close, they sometimes decide to broadcast other events, and fans sometimes migrate to other establishments.
A word to the wise: always call before visiting a bar to make sure they will broadcast the game you want to watch.
