Ford Field Information
Normally reserved for the NFL’s Detroit Lions, Ford Field, located in downtown Detroit, Michigan, will once again open its doors for NCAA Basketball. On December 13, 2003, Ford Field featured the largest crowd to ever watch a basketball game when the University of Kentucky played the Michigan State University. Over 78,000 people were in attendance. In order to blend the facility in with the Detroit skyline, the playing field is set below street level, much like the neighboring Comerica Park. The standard capacity for Ford Field is 62,000.
