Packers report $77.7 million in operating profit on $579 million in revenue

Mike Florio and Charean Williams analyze Davante Adams' comments about why he left Green Bay, his feelings about Jordan Love and what the Packers should have done to keep the WR.

The Packers are the only NFL team required to report their year-end financial results, and they did so Friday, pulling the curtain back on the NFL’s rebound from the pandemic.

The Packers posted a $77.7 million operating profit in the 2021 season on $579 million in revenue, Ben Fischer of the Sports Business Journal reports.

NFL teams had a 12 percent gain in revenue split equally among the 32 clubs, sharing $11.1 billion in television and sponsorship revenue in 2021, or $347.3 million per team.

That number has risen $3.3 billion -- or $100 million per team -- in the past five years and does not yet include the monster television rights packages signed last year. A 17th regular-season game, a primetime playoff game and increased sponsorships helped grow the league’s national revenue, per Fischer.

The Packers reported $231.7 million in local revenue, which was up 9.9 percent the last pre-pandemic season of 2019. Green Bay is “between 8th and 10th” in the league in local revenue, Packers president Mark Murphy said, via Fischer.

“The storyline from our financials from a year ago is a return to normalcy,” Murphy said.

In 2020, when the Packers played without fans in Lambeau Field, the team posted a $38.8 million loss on $371 million in revenue.

For the 2022 season, the Packers raised ticket prices.
