GREEN BAY, Wis., Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Even though the Green Bay Packers have the smallest market share of any NFL team, they have fans all across the country--even outside of it.
In Japan, there is a small but fervent pocket of incredibly devoted and excited Packers fans. Not expats, but Japanese citizens who have come to love all things Packers and Green Bay.
They are the Japanese Packers Cheering Team.
Now they are traveling 6,000 miles to see their very first Packers game--in person--at historic Lambeau Field.
We are making a documentary about how the love of the Green Bay Packers spans the entire world.
In September, they are coming to Green Bay to fulfill this dream. They will be staying with host families, and this meeting of loyal fans a world apart shows the power of everything that the Green Bay Packers are.
Imagine their lifelong dream being fulfilled. Stepping out of a plane and onto Wisconsin soil, and finally being in the heart of Packers' country. Imagine them in the bars of Green Bay. Mingling with lifelong Packers fans, experiencing a real Wisconsin Packers bar, and experiencing what it means to be in the city that they have come to love from afar.
The Japanese Packers Cheering Team would like a proper documentation of their amazing journey, and we want to provide the best possible one we can.
Our Kickstarter aims to raise $10,000 to cover the cost of filming and housing our Japanese guests. We believe that the power of sports to unite different cultures and people of all walks of life is a very powerful thing. We want to document this historic occasion on film, and show the world that the Green Bay Packers are more than just a football team.
