View Ford Field from an Insider's Prospective

Ever wonder what it would be like to run out of the tunnel at a professional football game? Thanks to the friendly people over at Ford Field, you have the chance to stop dreaming about it and actually do it!

Although unbeknownst to many, public tours of the three-year-old facility - which include that coveted tunnel visit - are offered twice a day, every Monday through Friday, at 11 am and 1 pm.

Arrive fifteen minutes early and be prepared to catch some rare glimpses of areas in the stadium that are accessible only to players, coaches, and VIPs during regular games, like the official locker room or the luxury suites. You'll also get a chance to walk on the field's turf, and imagine the stadium through the eyes of a professional athlete.

Lasting approximately one hour, public tours of Ford Field cost $7 for adults and $5 for seniors and children over age four. Kids five and under are free.

Visit Ford Field's website for more information on public tours, event hosting, and photos of the stadium.
