How Much Does it Cost to Attend a Detroit Lions Game?

Have you been missing out on the thrill of watching the Detroit Lions play live at a home game because you thought it would be too expensive to attend? The price of an exciting day at Ford Field actually isn’t that bad. We gathered information about this years ticket prices, parking and the cost of food and beverages at the concessions stands and we were surprised by how reasonable it can be. When you have a breakdown of the costs, you can practically develop a game day plan to meet your budget allocation and have the time of your life vs watching the televised version. We found the average amount that attendees will pay for 2018 based on past behaviors. In addition, we take it further to give you a breakdown of what it could cost if you cut a few corners.

The price of tickets at Ford Field is decent

The average attendee to watch the Lions play this year will pay $85 for a ticket. The ticket prices range from as low as $45 all the way up to $1,992 for premium seating. In general, the more you pay for a ticket, the better the view, the more comfortable the seating is and the ultra-premium tickets come with some fantastic amenities. The truth of the matter is when you’re at the game, any place you sit is going to be thrilling.

Parking fees are not that bad

On average, attendees will pay about $45 to park in the garage area on Gratiot Ave. which is a reasonably short distance to the game. The following are all garage parking and to park on Cass Ave the cost is $49, Row park is $60 per space, The D Garage costs $64, Row 850 on Witherell Street is $69 and Elizabeth Street Row 61 parking is $74. It’s important to arrive early because parking spots fill up quickly. If you don’t mind walking for a mile, you can find parking on game day at designated private lots for between $5 and $15. The closer you get to the Field, the higher the parking rates go so you can plan accordingly. You can park for about $25 if you’re willing to walk about a half mile.

The prices of food and beverages have just been lowered at Ford Field

Lions fans are in for a real treat this year. Ford Field has made every effort to lower the cost of their concessions to accommodate fans and reward them for attending the games. This is especially good news for attendees who can’t resist the smell of the food as they walk through and for those who bring the kids along and have larger groups. While some fields charge outrageous prices for concessions, this isn’t the case for 2018 at Ford. You can get a combination meal that includes a hot dog, chips and a soda for just $10. If you want to upgrade that meal and replace the soda with a beer, the cost is just $12. If you want to purchase beer separately, it will cost justs $5 each. This is the lowest price that we’ve seen so far. A single soda is just $2, while many other fields charge up to $5.50. If you enjoy cocktails, they’ree offered for $3 and specialty drinks are $5 and a single hot dog is $2 when you buy them within the first 60 minutes after the gate opens. This is just one more reason why it pays to arrive early. The doors are generally open two hours prior to kickoff so this gives you time to get your food, have a meal and wander around the stadium before finding your seat.

The average cost of attending a Detroit Lions Game

All things considered, most fans will pay $85 for a ticket, $45 for parking and $17 for a hot dog, chips and 2 beers for a total of $147. If this is a little more than you’re willing to pay, you can cut a few corners and pay $45 for a ticket, ride with a friend and split the cost of a $20 parking space and settle for a hot dog and a soda for the low cost of $59. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to watch your favorite team play ball in person. It only takes one live game to have you hooked for life and you’ll look forward to the excitement of being there in person and taking in all of the things that make baseball America’s favorite pastime.
