TDS Telecom announces sponsorship with Green Bay Packers

Green Bay, Wisconsin – A pair of winning Wisconsin organizations are announcing a new partnership.

TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) is proud to be a sponsor of the Green Bay Packers beginning with the 2022-23 season. The new sponsorship comes as TDS continues to build out all-fiber, high-speed internet networks in numerous communities in Wisconsin, including Green Bay and throughout the Fox Valley. Founded in Madison in 1969, TDS provides broadband, video, and voice as well as hosted and managed services to approximately 1.2 million connections nationwide.

“We are so pleased to partner with an organization that shares our values. The Packers and TDS each have a long history of community commitment and giving back. This partnership allows us to advance these mutual goals,” said Julie Maiers, TDS Senior Vice President of Marketing, Sales, and Customer Operations.

Packer fans may notice the sponsorship on display beginning with Friday’s Family Night festivities and continuing throughout the season, with TDS branding inside and outside Lambeau Field.

A big part of TDS’ mission is helping the communities it serves. To that end, TDS also plans to sponsor Packers-related events and giveaways benefitting local organizations that are making a difference in their communities.

Construction of TDS’ all-fiber internet network – known as the “gold standard” of residential internet connections – began in Green Bay earlier this year. When completed, the network will serve approximately 38,000 addresses in Green Bay and tens of thousands more throughout Brown County. In total, TDS is investing about $500 million of its own capital throughout Wisconsin and continues to upgrade underserved communities in suburban and rural America.

“As a longtime Wisconsin company, we are absolutely thrilled to partner with our home-state team and one of the most historic and beloved franchises in all of professional sports,” said Drew Petersen, TDS Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs. “As the Packers prepare for another championship season, TDS is hard at work to bring better connections to communities across the state, from Green Bay, to Janesville, to Brookfield, and many others.”
