The Packers originally planned to have an induction ceremony for Favre take place in the atrium of legendary Lambeau Field. But the event sold out before even being made available to the general public. Favre told FOX News that he wanted the event moved into the stadium so the thousands of fans who wanted to see him would be able to do so.
“Well, the response has been outstanding,” Favre told the Green Bay Press Gazette. “I think everyone should have an option to go and what better way to do it than Lambeau Field. You’re right, I didn’t play in the atrium. … As you know, that whole facility is second to none in any sport, but there’s nothing like Lambeau Field, and even though the atrium’s right there, it would be nice to do it in the stadium.”
After retiring from the Packers following a loss in the NFC Championship Game in 2007, Favre unretired to join the New York Jets for one season before leaving and joining the Minnesota Vikings – angering many fans who felt that Favre had betrayed them by joining a division rival. Favre would lead the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game in 2009.
Favre holds many of the NFL’s QB records, including most passing yards, most completions, most passing attempts, most games started, and most games played. He was a three-time NFL MVP with the Packers and led them to two NFC Championship wins and a Super Bowl title in 1996.
