With World Cup fever officially underway, it's the perfect time to highlight some of the amazing fans who cheer on the Packers from all around the world, thousands of miles and many time zones away from Green Bay. It’s clear that nothing can come between Packers fans and their team—not even living in a different hemisphere.
Here are just a few of the many different places that are home to fans like you.
