Ford Field, Detroit
Categories: Tourist Spots, Arenas & Stadiums
Home of the Detroit Lions, Ford Field offers tours of the stadium for a behind-the-scenes look. Opened in 2002, the multipurpose stadium hosted Superbowl XL, the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four, as well as many concerts and other large-scale events. The tour takes you to a Ford Field suite and an NFL locker room, and leads you down the tunnel to the field for a chance to stand directly on the turf and view the stadium from a player's perspective.

We went to see the Lions and were very pleased with the Stadium. The price for food is outrageous but enjoyed the game anyways.
There's just something lacking from Ford Field. Dim lighting, comfy seats, climate control and relatively quiet crowds makes you feel like you are in you're basement watching on a slightly larger big ... read more »
Ford Field is a great pro sports stadium. If you're going for an event, I suggest you work out parking ahead of time. There are several garages nearby but some require advance ticketing.
Went there for the first time this past June to see a concert. Felt safe with the abundance of security that was there. Everyone was whisked through security in a timely manner. There were three to five beer vendors on every stairway aisle (Which is good to have at a rock concert) that were fighting for position, lol Very enjoyable!
We ordered tickets for a pre season lions game at the ticket window. E asked for cheap seats, but the best of the cheap seats. We got the very last row of the third tier. The game was far from sold out so we were a little bummed about the seats. Thankfully my first had no problem jumping seats once the game started for a better view. The stadium is very clean and nice and fun to walk through.
We had tickets to the Kenny Chesney last Saturday and had tickets in the cushy padded seats in the premium 2nd level (section 205-225). When we had previously seen Guns n Roses here on the lower level facing straight onto stage, our seats were regular hard plastic stadium seats and accessed the normal stadium food. On this premium level, we got a taste of Detroit: Sugar House cocktails, Slow's BBQ, Cass Corridor Sausage, Mercury Bat Burgers, Eastern Market Deli, and Bigalora. This made all the difference! We could comfortably watch from bar tables in the main lobby on this floor, and even the bathrooms were nicer. I'd come back again and just get seats more towards the end of the field, than centerline for a concert. For a football game, section 205 is great!
We come to the Kenny concert every year as well as the monster truck shows. This venue is the best for concerts. Great acoustics plus Slows bbq! Love it
It's often rough being a Detroit Lions fan; I won't deny it. However, I do enjoy coming to this stadium, usually at least once a year, to see a game. The seating is a bit roomier than other arenas, and the Club Zone is especially comfortable. That said, I do remember ordering a Sierra Nevada on tap a couple years ago, and it came to $11.50. Nearly $12 for a single, watered down 12 oz plastic glass of Sierra Nevada? Really guys? I've never ordered a drink here since.
