The National Football League's Detroit Lions played outside the city at the Pontiac Silverdome since abandoning Detroit's Tiger Stadium at the end of the 1974 season. In 2002, the Lions moved back to the city and into their new digs at Ford Field, a massive 65,000-seat stadium of steel and glass in the city's downtown entertainment district. Besides sporting events, the facility holds concerts, banquets, corporate events and other special events as well.
Ford field is a nice looking dome from the inside and out. Only problem, this place is an exeplification of what is wrong with the NFL today..INDOOR FOOTBALL. Football is suposed to be played outside in the elements. Ford Field is what it is; just another corporate stadium.
lovely facilities, reasonable prices for good quality food and merchandise.
stadium looks great unfortunatly the Lions didnt perform so well. still had a good time.
sat in club level with cool restaurant before gametime.
walked around concourse at halftime very impressed with whole place, new tiger stadium accross the road also looks superb.
Even though my team lost, The people of Detroit went out of their way to ensure a positive experience. Not just at this venue but everywhere we went we were treated very well. The whole city should be commended. They pulled it off and should be considered again for major events.
This stadium in unbelievable! From the minute you walk in it just opens up to this one BIG massive place! The food is great and you have over 50 places to choose from, there are bars everywhere, bathrooms all over and the lines are never longer than 2 minutes to wait. The seats are pretty spacious. The TV Screens that they have on both ends of the stadium are so huge and clear I watched most of the game on that! Lol. I can�t say enough good things about this place, They really did do a good job. If I had to pick one thing that I do not like about this place. It would have to be that the people mover doesn�t stop near or at the stadium. It�s closest stop is many blocks away. Super Bowl XL is going to be one of the best things that has ever happened to this city. I just hope everything goes well. Good Luck Detroit!
This is a brand new stadium...great for concerts, football, or anything else!
The beer and food are a bit expensive but there are ATM'S if you need extra cash!
A great place to hang out with friends and watch a Lion's game!
I've been to Ford Field for an Eminem consert and a Detroit Lions game. They were both awesome. Ford Field is so huge, you don't have to wait forever for something to eat or drink. Everything is really clean and the atmosphere just gets you pumped before the game. There isn't a bad seat in the place, oh i had a blast at the football game. Especially when my face was on the big screen in the middle of half time. It was great i'll be going again soon.
