Just two years removed from struggling to sell out regular season games, the Detroit Lions have now sold out a preseason game.
The Lions announced via a press release on Tuesday night that Saturday's game against the New England Patriots is sold out. Tom Lewand hinted that a sellout was close during last Friday's game against the Cleveland Browns, and the sellout was confirmed tonight.
The Detroit Lions announced this evening that they have reached a sellout for their final home preseason game against the New England Patriots Saturday, August 27 (kickoff set for 8 p.m. ET). By reaching a sellout, the nationally televised CBS broadcast will also air in the local television markets (Metro Detroit, Lansing, Saginaw/Flint and Toledo), including WWJ-TV CBS 62.
