The Green Bay Packers are the only franchise in sports that allows fans to have ownership of the team. The Packers are actually owned by their fans and recently went through a stock sale in 2021. Fans who purchase "stock" in the team do not actually earn any profit, but they earn the right to go to shareholder meetings and vote on certain aspects of the team. One of these aspects is who joins the board of directors.
LeRoy Butler Named to the Packers Board of Directors
At the annual shareholders meeting, the Packers presented four names as nominees to be voted onto the board of directors: LeRoy Butler, Laurie Radke, Sachin Shivaram and Christopher Stiles. Butler was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2022, and in 2023, he was subsequently officially named to the Packers Shareholders Board of Directors. He posted on social media following the assignment.

Butler was excited, to say the least. He talked to Spectrum News 1 after he was named to the board.
"I never really thought I would ever get into the Hall of Fame. I never really thought about being on the board of directors, but my mom, she said, that's what you got to expect, things like this."
Butler is obviously a prominent name in Green Bay. He was certainly a key contributor in bringing a championship to the organization in the 1996 season. That fact is not lost on Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy.
"I can't say enough about how much he means to the organization. A player like that, who stayed in the area, is a prominent figure, not only a successful player, a Hall of Fame player, but has gone on to do great things with his life. Yeah, actually we were talking about it coming off the field. Hopefully, people like Dexter McNabb and LeRoy are role models for our current players that football doesn't last forever."
- Mark Murphy to Spectrum News 1
Butler is now in a position to make an even bigger impact in both the community and on the team. Butler is looking at his position as an opportunity to inspire members of the community in Green Bay while also making an impact on the organization that helped make him a Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee.
"I want kids to look like me. Special needs kids, African-Americans in the projects, single family home in poverty, saying, 'one day you can do this.' And I appreciate that. So, I'm kind of like the beacon of light for the kids that want to do great things on and off the field. With this kind of platform, I could really help the people in the Wisconsin area. And then, we want to grow to show other teams how you connect with your fans.”
