Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan is an indoor football stadium built for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League. The stadium will host the 2010 NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Frozen Four. The ice surface will be placed in the western end zone and seating will be added along the sides of the rink to supplement the stadium's normal bowl seating.
The original plan was to put the ice surface in the center of the football field and fill seating all around it, with a planned capacity of 70,000, but slow ticket sales due to a slumping economy caused a change to the revised layout, which will have a capacity of 36,000.
