About Ford FieldOn August 20, 1996 the Detroit Lions announced plans to build new domed stadium in downtown Detroit. In November 1999, the team hosted the "From the Ground Up" groundbreaking ceremony which unveiled renderings and officially named the new stadium Ford Field. Ford Field opened its doors on August 24, 2002. 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. 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.
