GREEN BAY, Wis. — Most people leave Lambeau Field with good memories of their time spent there, but some unintentionally leave a part of them behind.

What You Need To Know

  • More than 800 items have been left behind by Lambeau fans since April

  • Valuable items will only be kept for 48 hours and non-valuable items will only be kept for 24 hours

  • Unclaimed non-valuables like blankets are donated locally to organizations like the Humane Society

Keith Cronin manages guest services at Lambeau Field. Cronin said he’s seen tens of thousands of green and gold fanatics walk by his desk every game. He said their energy is the best part of his job. 

“You can’t help but catch the Packers fever when you’re here and surrounded by it every day,” Cronin said.

Tracking lost and found items is one of Cronin’s job duties. Cronin said since April fans have left behind a lot of stuff.

“There are just around slightly under 800 total lost and found items,” Cronin said.

These items are classified as valuable or non-valuable. Cronin said most of the non-valuables are seasonal, like scarves or sunglasses, but there’s a wide range of valuable items.

“Mobile phones, credit cards, sometimes jewelry,” Cronin said.

Cronin said in his 16 years with the team he’s seen some strange items.

“There have been a pair of shoes, a cane walker and hearing aids that have been lost,” Cronin laughed.

Cronin isn’t the only one to find some unusual items. In the 12 years that Barb Vandehey has worked for the Packers, she said she’s seen some strange things left behind.

“Someone lost their dentures once. That’s yeah, a very personal item,” Vandehey smiled.

Vandehey said fans have also left essentials.

“Passports, we’ve run across a few of those, and anybody that’s traveling, you got to have that passport to get on the airplane,” Vandehey said.

Cronin said they try to return all items to the owner and start with the essentials and valuables. If certain non-valuables are not claimed, they go on to help others.

“Hats and gloves, blankets are donated locally. For example, we donate the blankets to the Humane Society,” Cronin said.
