About FORD FIELD
Ford Field, the home of the Detroit Lions, is comprised of approximately 1.85 million square feet with four levels of suites, a level of club seating, and a ground level designated for restaurants, concessions and retail.
The unique design incorporates the old Hudson’s warehouse (established in the 1920’s) as part of the industry-leading sports and entertainment development that will include banquet facilities, restaurants, office space, retail services, food courts, lounge areas and all private suites.
The $500 million complex boasts a seven-story atrium within the warehouse. At the end of the atrium (the southeast corner of the stadium) is a glass wall, which provides a picturesque view of the Detroit skyline.
On February 15th, 2017 the Detroit Lions announced that the Ford Family was investing approximately $100 million into Ford Field for new video boards and several other renovations to be completed in time for the 2017 Detroit Lions season. In addition to replacing the videoboards, the sound system was further upgraded along with The Corner Lounge, stadium suites and premium club areas on both the north and south side of the stadium.
Ford Field claims the best sight lines of any football stadium in the United States, made available by a design that omits the traditional club and suite levels, thereby lowering the upper level.
There are a total of 65,000 seats, including over 7,000 club seats that feature wide padded seats, private lounges, upscale food service, and preferred parking.
Ford Field hosts dozens of events each year, including Detroit Lions football games, other sporting events such as the Quick Lane Bowl, concerts, banquets, tradeshows, business meetings, and conventions. The expected yearly attendance of all events is estimated to be nearly 1.5 million.
A restaurant-quality dining experience for suites, private clubs, specialty concessions and special events of all sizes is provided by Levy Restaurants Sports and Entertainment Group.
