Home Field

In 1920 the Packers continued playing home games at Hagemeister park. That year the city built stands on one side of the field. This was the first time the Packers were able to charge an admission.[3] The Packers played ten home games in the 1920 season winning nine times and tying once. In the first year of professional Thanksgiving Football,[4] the Packers played and defeated the Stambaugh Miners, 14–0, in Green Bay. This would be the first of only two occasions when the Packers would play at home on Thanksgiving, out of 33 total Thanksgiving games.[5]
