The Bullfrogs presented a letter of intent for an exclusive negotiating window until May 18, 2016 to reach an agreement with the City on a proposed downtown Outdoor Event Center. The facility would be located on Broadway at the intersection of Broadway and the Mason St. Bridge, on the Fox River.

The outdoor event center would feature 2,500 fixed seats with a capacity of 4,000 and have the ability to hold up to 8,000 guests for a concert. The proposed facility would be home of the Green Bay Bullfrogs, a minor league soccer team, local youth and high school sporting events, community festivals, local fundraisers, and concerts.

The facility, scheduled to open in 2018, would be programmed approximately 150 days annually. The Bullfrogs have increased attendance 55% since the team was purchased by Big Top Baseball in 2013 and sold out 17 of 34 home games in 2015 averaging 89% of the total capacity of the stadium.

The Bullfrogs open their 2016 schedule on Tuesday, May 31st at Joannes Stadium as they play host to the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters. For information on preseason ticket specials and group outings call the Bullfrogs office at (920) 497-7225 or stop by the website at greenbaybullfrogs.com.
