Lions announce full capacity at Ford Field for 2021 season

DETROIT – The Detroit Lions announced today plans to have Ford Field at full capacity for all regular season 2021 home games. The stadium was not open to the public in 2020.

"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 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.

The Lions will be bringing back all Gameday fan experiences including Pride Plaza with tailgate games and a zip line on Brush Street.

DTE Energy Power Hour will be the first hour after gates open and feature giveaways like bobbleheads and other apparel as well as concession specials such as $2 sodas, $2 hot dogs, $3 packaged beers, $3 well drinks, and $5 specialty cocktails at 13 new locations. All-day Silver Savings fan value pricing on food and drinks will also return with value meal combos of a hot dog, chips, and soda for $10 or a hot dog, chips, and beer for $12 in addition to $5 beer at multiple locations throughout the game.
