Ford Field Tickets
Located in downtown Detroit, Michigan, Ford Field is an indoor American football stadium, that was unveiled in 2002. Originally designed to be an outdoor stadium to replace Tiger Stadium and the Pontiac Silverdome, the field went under several redesigns until it reached its final construction that is completely indoors. The field serves as the home field of the NFL Detroit Lions and during home football games it can expand to seat up to 70,000 fans. However, there are also several basketball events held at the field and during these events the stadium can hold up to 80,000.
Even though it is completely closed off, when the stadium was being designed the idea of incorporating natural light into the venue was drawn into the plans. This goal resulted in the addition of expansive skylights and several large glass windows around the corners of the stadium. Even the stadium windows are designed, like the rest of the venue, to celebrate the history of the city of Detroit. This is why all of the windows in the stadium were designed to mimic the style of the automotive factories found in Metro Detroit. The stadium is also one of the few NFL venues that has end zones in the east and the west instead of the north and south. The NFL has a rule against this so that sunlight cannot impact the game. However, due to the indoor construction of the field it was allowed.
During its short but prevalent history Ford Field, which features a FieldTurf covering has hosted several big events. In 2006, it was home to Super Bowl XL. The venue was also home to a record-breaking tour performance from Madonna who played to the sold out field in 2008. More records were broken in 2007 when the WWE hosted WrestleMania 23 at the venue and set the attendance record for the arena at 80,103 people. The venue was also the site of the 2008 NCAA Basketball Tournament regional semifinals and finals and the 2009 Final Four as well as the 2010 Frozen Four. During all of these events fans can expect to enjoy a massive football arena sized atmosphere that is held in a comfortable and climate controlled covered structure that makes viewing any event something that must be experienced.
