Ford Field, the home of the NFL’s Detroit Lions, is on schedule to complete its current $100 million renovation by August 1st. The Lions’ first preseason home game isn’t until August 19th.
Included in the renovation are new $20 million Daktronics video boards spanning 270 feet, as well as 209,000 square feet of refreshed premium space, spanning multiple levels, including suites, restaurants, bars, and lounge spaces.
Post-renovation, Ford Field will shine 26,500 square feet of LED displays composed of 28.8 million LEDs. Included in the premium makeover is the addition of 13 sections of four-seat loge boxes, costing $30,000 annually, as well as the Corner Bar and its 90-foot bar and video walls.
Some suites have been relocated to make room for the new inventory, but Ford Field still boasts 128 suites. Overall capacity also remains at 65,000.
The renovation is designed by ROSSETTI with Turner Construction serving as general contractor.
