Ford Field Returning to Full Capacity for 2021 Season
The Detroit Lions announced Monday that Ford Field will be at full capacity for all regular season 2021 home games.
Ford Field was not open to the public during the 2020 season.
“We have long awaited the moment where we can officially declare we will have 65,000 fans at Ford Field this fall,” said Detroit Lions Team President and CEO Rod Wood. “We’ve worked diligently with the NFL, as well looked to federal, state and local guidelines to monitor what’s best for our team, staff and fans. We’re thrilled to be at this point and to welcome One Pride back into the stadium. I can’t say it enough, it hasn’t been the same without them.”
The Lions issued the following statement in regards to returning to full capacity:
The re-opening of Ford Field to fans was made final as a result of several considerations, with the steady COVID-19 vaccination rate in Michigan being chief among them. In following the State of Michigan’s reopening guidelines, the Lions will not require proof of vaccination status and face coverings will not be required for fans. Unvaccinated guests are still encouraged to wear a face covering. The Lions and Ford Field are committed to working with local, state and national health officials and reserve the right to return to play without fans should current COVID-19 conditions evolve.
Single-game tickets for regular season home games go on sale Wednesday, July 28 at 10 a.m.
