The Detroit Lions and MGM Grand Detroit have teamed up to build a luxurious private space at Ford Field for approximately 100 annual members. Now under construction in the Lion’s existing stadium, this season the MGM Grand Detroit Tunnel Club will provide an exclusive premium experience for fans combining the excitement of Lions football with the luxury and service associated with MGM Grand Detroit. The inaugural season cost of membership? A whopping $9,500…unlimited food and sodas included.
Adjacent to the Detroit Lions locker room, the MGM Grand Detroit Tunnel Club will accommodate over 100 fans and MGM Grand Detroit guests during home games and stadium events.
“Our team is excited to enter into this partnership with the Detroit Lions,” said MGM Grand Detroit President and COO Steve Zanella. “MGM Resorts International takes pride in providing first-class entertainment destinations around the world. The MGM Grand Detroit Tunnel Club is truly a collaborative, unique and one-of-a-kind game day experience that further extends our long-standing relationship with the Detroit Lions.”
Members and guests will have an up close view of Detroit Lions players leaving and entering the locker room from multiple areas of the club including an area with bleacher-style seating. Other perks include a private cash bar, a corner lounge celebrating Detroit, and early entry to the stadium three hours before kickoff. An added bonus is that the lower bowl in the west end zone is being extended to include field level seating for tunnel club season members. Given the fact that the MGM Grand Detroit is the only Forbes Four-Star hotel in town, their Ford Field luxury lounge promises to be a game-changer, bringing the gold-standard to the gridiron.
