A $146 million renovation and expansion project at Lambeau Field is nearly complete.
There are new video boards, sound system, suites, viewing platforms as well as 7,000 new seats and 30 new concession stands.
"It's definitely in the homestretch," said Packers spokesman Aaron Popkey. "Things have come into their focus here, very very nicely and from the drawing board to seeing it come together is very, very exciting for the organization."
About 105,000 people were on the wait list for season tickets before the Packers started selling the new seats. Of the more than 5,000 people offered tickets, about 3,800 accepted them, Popkey said. He said 1,500 existing ticket holders chose to move to the new south end zone, which is general seating.
The new seats will be ready for a July 18 open house, said Stu Zadra, vice president of contractor Hammes Co.
The latest renovations started in 2011. In March, workers also started on $140.5 million in upgrades to the atrium; those are expected to be done in 2015.
Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District members and other public officials toured the nearly finished project Wednesday. The stadium district is the Packers' landlord.
Ann Patteson, stadium district chairwoman, said a 2003 sales tax-funded renovation project put the Packers in a position to do the new projects without seeking additional public money.
"Each space feels different than the other spaces, but it still respects the traditional culture," she said. "They haven't changed the character of Lambeau."
