Packers made $226M from 2015 NFL revenue sharing
The Packers got more than $225 million from the NFL in national revenue sharing. Which means the league made more than $7 million last year.
The Packers, the NFL's only publicly-owned team, released their finances for the 2015 fiscal year on Monday and revealed the team received a $226.4 million check from the NFL's revenue sharing program.
That means the NFL raked in north of $7.2 billion from national revenue, most of which was generated from television deals.
The revenue received by the Packers is an increase of $38.7 million from last year.
Locally, the Packers made $149.3 million, up $12.9 million from the previous year.
Packers CEO Mark Murphy discussed a pair of big-time renovations in and around Lambeau Field, including the massive, 50-acre Titletown project around Lambeau and a $55 million renovation of the stadium's luxury suites.
"I think the fans [in the suites] really want to feel that they're connected with the game," Murphy said, via ESPN.com. "So that will be the biggest improvement there."
