The village already purchased five acres for the stadium.

The team's owner planned to build its new stadium in Green Bay as part of the Shipyard development, but moved the plans to Ashwaubenon after voicing frustration over the slow pace of approval from Green Bay's city government.

The Bullfrogs currently play at Joannes Park in Green Bay, and will have one more season there this summer.
