Lions team President Tom Lewand announced earlier today that this Sunday’s home opener against the Philadelphia Eagles has sold out.
Lewand: “We have sold out, the blackout will be lifted. The Eagles returned some tickets last night, so we still have tickets available for sale, I’m not sure about the exact amount, but there are still tickets available.”
Lewand expressed his gratitude toward the die-hard Detroit fans who have continued to support the organization.
Lewand: “We couldn’t be more excited. This is the fans supporting us and we, in turn, expect to put a good product out there Sunday and make it a great atmosphere. They’re doing their part by supporting us and we’re going to do our part by playing a great game on Sunday.”
Furthermore, Lewand stated that the Detroit Lions and Ford Field continue to make improvements on the overall fan game day experience.
Lewand: “Whether it’s all-you-can-eat seats, whether it’s things we’re doing on the video boards differently this year, or entertainment. A lot of those things are important and we can never lose sight of that fact. The core of what we do is that football game. That’s what people want to come out and support. That’s the message that we’re receiving from our fans and that we’re very grateful to receive from our fans this weekend, by the support that they’ve shown us by getting the stadium sold out for Sunday.”
