GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A new slogan is gracing the original Packers fence near Lambeau Field.

It's a tradition that dates back more than three decades. In honor of the Packers' 100th season, this year's slogan was chosen as a tribute to Vince Lombardi.

The phrase "Lombardi Legacy-leaders made here" now adorns the fence. Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy was on hand to help with the painting.

"I was talking to Fred and they have not had a Lombardi quote in the history of this, so it's kind of fitting for the 100th season. You know when you think of what Lombardi meant to this franchise and our history, it's pretty appropriate," said Murphy of this year's slogan.

The fence is recognized as a historical site.
