Lambeau Field hosts its first soccer game


Lambeau Field usually hosts Green Bay Packers football. The other kind of football came to Green Bay on Saturday night.

The same year the Packers will travel to London to play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Lambeau hosted its first-ever football game.

Despite weather interrupting play, the pre-season friendly between Manchester City and Bayern Munich was played in front of a packed Lambeau Field.

Man City’s England won the match 1-0, courtesy of an early goal from star Erling Haaland.

This moment alone makes it a historic moment. Haaland was making his Man City debut following a move from Borussia Dortmund to Germany.

Haaland knows all about playing against Bayern Munich, having spent the last three seasons with Dortmund in the German Bundesliga.

It took him just 12 minutes to find the net for the first time in Man City colors and score the winning goal against Bayern Munich on Saturday night.

The event turned out to be a success.

According to the official Packers Twitter account, more than 78,000 fans were in attendance for the game.

Lambeau Field has hosted many incredible Green Bay Packers moments over the years, but it’s great to see the stadium packed for another sporting contest.

While it was just an exhibition game as both teams prepared for the start of the 2022/23 season, the fans in attendance got to see some of the best players in the world.

Running back AJ Dillon and punter Pat O’Donnell were in attendance, wearing Bayern Munich shirts.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur met Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola before the game.

For the first time, Lambeau hosted a football match. Later this year, Green Bay will cross the pond to play a regular season game with the New York Giants at a football stadium.

Hopefully this will be the first of many football games to be played at Lambeau Field.
