The Detroit Lions announced a sellout for this weekend’s home opener against the Minnesota Vikings.
Though the game is an official sellout and will therefore appear on local television, the Vikings have returned an allotment of tickets available for purchase. Fans can purchase those tickets here.
Head Coach Jim Schwartz commented on the sellout following Friday afternoon’s practice.
Schwartz: “Well it’s important to the city for everybody to see it, but I’m really excited to see our fans in action. There’s a home field advantage in the National Football League. We saw it last week, drawing a couple false start penalties because of the crowd noise. When you can get that 12th man on your side – the crowd noise, the excitement – the players will feel it. It will be electric. It’s the home opener. It’s going to be a great time. I’m really looking forward to it.”
