Single-game tickets for the Detroit Lions 2021 season are on sale now. On Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET, the box office—and virtual box office—opened for all 10 home games for the upcoming year (eight regular season, two preseason).
Tickets are available through the Detroit Lions’ official website, at their box office location in Ford Field or via phone at 313-262-2222.
As of this publishing, it appears tickets are available for as low as $61 (plus fees) for the home opener against the 49ers in Week 1. If you want to make it back to Ford Field for the Thanksgiving Day classic against the Chicago Bears, it’ll cost you a little more, with tickets currently $95 and up.
As a reminder, the Lions announced a couple weeks ago that there would be no COVID-19 related attendance restrictions for the 2021 season. Additionally, the team said fans will not need to provide proof of vaccination nor will they have to wear a mask while in the building. Though it’s worth noting that those conditions may change should the scope of COVID-19 change in the upcoming months.
Season tickets are still available for the 2021 season, with currently available ticket packages running as low as $439—or $43.90 per game—with additional fees.
- Last Friday, Lions center Frank Ragnow hosted kids from Experience Camp—a non-profit that helps children work through the loss of a loved one—at Ford Field. Ragnow, too, lost his father at a young age. Here are some pictures from the event via ESPN’s Eric Woodyard:
Last Friday, Frank Ragnow hosted kids from @ExperienceCamps to share his personal grief story while also giving them a tour of the locker room at @fordfield in addition to running drills for them. He lost his dad, Jon, in 2016 and the grieving is “ongoing.” Here are some pics. https://t.co/y1cxzf2wsb pic.twitter.com/SmQswTZRvO— Eric Woodyard (@E_Woodyard) July 27, 2021
And here’s a quote from Ragnow and one of the kids at the event via Experience Camps:
“This was important to me because I am a grieving kid,” said Ragnow. “My dad died when I was 20, and the process was really hard. I’ve felt very alone. It was five years ago now and it gets easier, but there will always be tough moments. Today is about hearing the kids’ stories and learning about what they have experienced.”
For 13-year-old Zachary from Sterling Heights, Michigan, this was a meaningful opportunity to hear from a football star talk openly about grief. “I liked this event because it felt different hearing a football player talk about his sadness and knowing he felt the same way I did,” said Zachary, whose brother died in a car accident. “Grief can really build up inside you. You need to release it to feel better. Hearing Frank and other kids talking about this makes it feel easier.”
- Four Lions players stepped in front of the podium after Wednesday’s practice. Here are the sessions of Michael Brockers and Romeo Okwara:

- Aaron Rodgers had a buzzworthy press conference over in Green Bay on Wednesday. Perhaps the most telling part: when he immediately stopped himself from saying “I love the organization.”
