Who Are the Green Bay Gamblers
The Green Bay Gamblers are a Tier I junior ice hockey team in the Eastern Conference of the United States Hockey League. They were founded in 1994 and they play their home games at the Resch Center, which is located across the street from Lambeau Field.
The Gamblers are considered one of the “premiere” junior hockey teams, having won several national championships over the years. Many former players have gone on to play in the NHL and several team members even played in the 2006, 2014, and 2022 Olympic Games!
Cheering on the Green Bay Gamblers is a fun experience in and of itself, but what makes the games extra fun are the theme nights! You can always check the website to see the themes of the upcoming home games – some nights even have multiple themes!
As we mentioned at the top of this article, two super fun games are coming up. First, the Gamblers vs Madison game on Saturday, November 18 has a “Ladies Night” theme. Gather your girlfriends for a fun night out! In addition to drink specials during the game, there will be a pre-game market starting at 4:30pm with all kinds of fun vendors to browse and shop!
Then, a few days later on November 22 is Retro Night as the Gamblers face off against Cedar Rapids. Retro Night is all about celebrating the past with throwback jerseys and throwback tunes. Of course, there are also beer specials and all kinds of other in-game surprises.
