Detroit’s Ford Field to undergo renovations
DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions have begun a $100 million renovation to spruce up Ford Field, a project that’s scheduled to be completed before next season starts.
Team president Rod Wood says the improvements will make the facility ready to host another Super Bowl. Pittsburgh beat Seattle to win a Super Bowl at Ford Field in February 2006.
Wood says the 15-year-old stadium was due for a significant upgrade.
The highlight of the changes may be 152-foot wide videoboards above each end zone that will rank among the 10 largest in the NFL after the original ones were among the league’s smallest last season.
