Detroit is ready for some free Monday Night Football.
30,000 tickets were given away in 90 minutes on Monday morning before the Lions had to cut off the line distributing tickets outside Ford Field, according to Tom Pelissero of espn1500.com.
They could have given away countless more tickets, but the remaining room is being saved for fans that had tickets to the game in Minnesota. Monday night’s game will provide a strange atmosphere for in Detroit, but we know the place won’t be empty.
Heck, it may be too crowded.
Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune quotes the Lions President as saying the game may be a “little oversubscribed.” The Lions also released a statement saying that admission is first come, first served. A ticket does not guarantee admission.
