Monday Night Game Sets Lions Ford Field Attendance Record

The Detroit Lions sold out their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears back in August within an hour of tickets going on sale. Last week, they put 2,000 standing room only tickets on sale, and all of them sold out in about 15 minutes.

With the demand so high for tickets to this game, the thinking was the Lions could break the Ford Field attendance record for a football game, which was set at Super Bowl XL when 68,206 were in attendance. As it turns out, the Lions came close to breaking the record, but they'll have to settle for breaking the record for a Lions game at Ford Field.

Today's attendance: 67,861 - a new #Lions attendance record at #FordField

The 67,861 in attendance got their money's worth, as the Lions beat the Bears by a score of 24-13.
