According to news reports, the Detroit Lions have stopped distributing free tickets to Monday night’s football game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants. The game is slated to take place in Detroit, Monday evening, after the roof collapsed in Minnesota Sunday, due to heavy snow accumulations.
According to the team,there was an “overwhelming response” to tickets for the Vikings’ home game that was moved to Monday at Ford Field in Detroit after the Metrodome’s inflated roof collapsed.
The Lions did say that those fans holding tickets to the Giants-Vikings game scheduled in Minneapolis will be admitted and given preferred seating in Detroit.
Ford Field has a seating capacity of 64,500.
