NFL 2023 Fan of the Year |

Green Bay Packers


Anna Linberg

Anna Linberg was born and raised in San Diego, California, but both of her parents are from small towns near Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The first thing she learned as a baby was to shoot both arms straight up in the air when she heard "Touchdown, Packers!" Her deep Wisconsin roots have helped immerse her into Packers history and culture throughout her life. Her family tries to take a vacation to attend at least one game a season and they are grateful for the countless memories and love of football they share. They withstood a downpour in New York against the Giants and endured a bone-cutting windchill in Washington, D.C. She and her dad celebrated the Rodgers-to-Rodgers Hail Mary on top of a sports bar's table, paying no mind to how they may have embarrassed themselves. She was bundled up for the freezing temperatures this last January at Lambeau Field against the Vikings and enjoyed the entire experience of attending one of the coldest games in Lambeau history, especially when AJ Dillon did the Lambeau Leap directly in front of their seats! Anna says it has been a wonderful journey, from watching games at a beachfront bar in San Diego to enjoying the best fried cheese curds ever outside of Lambeau. She has traveled to various European countries and multiple NFL stadiums and the atmosphere and energy in Green Bay is like nowhere else. She is grateful for what the organization has done for her and her family. The Packers are the one thing they all agree on, contributing to memories that will last a lifetime!

Currently, Anna is a senior at the University of Wisconsin – Madison graduating a year early with a Personal Finance degree. She has a passion for learning, trying new things and being involved in the community. Starting in high school, she participated in several community outreach events and mentored the growing local elementary and middle school robotics teams. As the president of the robotics teams, she was able to cultivate relationships in the community that are still in place today. Being a part of NJROTC Community Service Club opened her eyes to how a small act of kindness can create a large ripple effect in the community. These gratifying experiences continue to motivate her to help others and volunteer whenever possible. She currently volunteers at the Food Recovery Network, which helps fight against food insecurities and food waste, and at the Habitat for Humanity UW-Madison chapter, which helps build affordable homes for Madison residents through community outreach events and fundraising efforts.

Beyond football, she enjoys concerts, comedy shows and theater. Her love for trying new things and traveling introduced her to K-pop, which inspired her to learn Korean, first on her own and then through classes at school. She's also fluent in ASL, which she learned in high school, and she's studying Spanish in her free time, as well.
