Detroit Lions

Capacity: 64,500

Surface: Turf

History: When Ford Field opened its doors in 2002, it marked the return of the Lions to downtown Detroit for the first time since 1974. The $500 million development project includes a giant, glass wall that reveals the Motor City's skyline and the old Hudson's warehouse, which originally was built in 1920 by Hudson's department store as a seven-level repository for fine linens, furniture and light fixtures. The impressive facility hosted Super Bowl XL in 2006 and the 2009 Men's Basketball Final Four, and it has been selected as the site of the 2009 Men's Hockey Frozen Four.
