Lambeau Field - Green Bay, WI

It’s the oldest NFL stadium currently in use, and one of the three oldest professional sports stadiums in the country. It’s also known for hosting some of the coldest games in NFL history, the reason why it’s often referred to as “The Frozen Tundra.” Lambeau Field opened in 1957 as the City Stadium with the Packers playing against the Chicago Bears.
