GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers chairman Bob Harlan says he's content to keep capacity of Lambeau Field as it is.

But, the man who'll take over as head of the team later this year says he's not ruling out expansion in the future.

Harlan and John Jones made the comments while attending the National Football League owners meeting in Phoenix.

Lambeau Field's capacity jumped from about 61,000 to nearly 73,000 with the stadium renovation.

The Packers have sold out every home game in Green Bay since 1960.

There's a season ticket waiting list of approximately 71,500.

Jones says there are no plans currently to expand Lambeau, but team executives think about what it will take to remain competitive over the next decade and beyond.
