Despite going 6-10 last season and not experiencing any sustained success until the end of the year, the Detroit Lions managed to sell out seven of their eight home games. Given that, it should come as no surprise that this year's Lions team, which is currently 9-5 and in position to clinch a playoff spot, sold out all eight home games, including Saturday's game against the San Diego Chargers. From Tim Twentyman:
Lions reach sellout but there are return tickets from San Diego and club seats still available for purchase. That's 13 in a row for Lions
That's a pretty good streak that the Lions are building, and if they continue to be successful on the field, it should continue to grow next season and beyond. Fans have come out in big numbers this season, and they have made Ford Field a tough place to play for opposing teams. Saturday should show off the homefield advantage the Lions have, as Ford Field is expected to be rocking with the playoffs in sight.
If you are looking for tickets to the game, make sure to check out the POD Tickets page. Also, if you are interested in a specific deal on seats, check out this "Pick Your Price" offer. Right now the average price for Saturday's game is $112 (down seven percent this week and well below the average home price of $142, as the chart below shows), but you should be able to offer around $60 each for two "three-star tickets" and get them for around $30 off the total price per ticket. What's more, there are no service or shipping fees, so this sounds like a pretty good deal (it ends soon, so act fast).
