Packers fan waiting for seats? Your day may come

GREEN BAY, Wis. (KWWL) -

There's good news for the 81,000 fans on the waiting list for Green Bay Packers season tickets.

The team plans to add about 6,600 new seats at venerable Lambeau Field. And the team says it will fund the $130 million project itself.

The seats will be ready for the 2013 season. The project will also include construction of a rooftop viewing terrace that club-seat holders can use on game days.

Current season-ticket holders will get the first access to the new seats with a chance to trade their existing seats. Priority goes to those who have held tickets the longest.

Lambeau Field is the oldest continually operating NFL stadium and third oldest continually operating venue in major sports behind Wrigley Field in Chicago and Fenway Park in Boston. The stadium opened in 1957 with 32,500 seats; it now has 72,928 seats
