It probably shouldn’t come as that big of a surprise that the first Lions home playoff game in 30 years is one of the hottest tickets in sports right now. In fact, it already appears some former players and celebrities are already planning their trips to Ford Field. Former Lions Pro Bowl safety Glover Quin is on his way:
I’m booked! Detroit we turning up Sunday night in Ford Field!!!— Glover Quin (@GloverQuinJr) January 8, 2024
Beyond just being the first playoff game in Detroit in three decades, there are plenty of reasons to want to be at this game. There’s the return of quarterback Matthew Stafford to Detroit for the first time since being traded three years ago. There’s the Jared Goff revenge game angle. There’s also the fact that these are two of the most exciting teams in football with high-powered offenses.
With people willing to pay exorbitant amount of prices for tickets to this game, you know Ford Field is going to be rocking on Sunday night.
