The Lions are back and so are the fans! With a new quarterback and front office, the faithful will be loud at Ford Field. But you gotta make sure you're at Ford Field early to take advantage of the concessions.

Discounts on concessions at Ford Field

When the gates open for the Lions game, two hours before the game starts, you can get some great prices on food and drinks through the Silver Savings. 

You can get a pop for $2, a hot dog for $2, beer for $3, and a cocktail for $3. That's for the first 60 minutes after the doors open at select locations - specifically, Streats (sections 109, 124, 126, 130, 137, 217, 223, 227, 229, 238, 244), SZ at section 117. Bud LIght Party Zone, Social D, WynnBet (formerly Corner Bar and Grille at section 224).

How to order concessions on your phone

Ok - this is pretty cool. When you're at the game, you can order food on your phone and skip those long lines and just pick up your items. This is great for families or for people who don't want to miss the game.

To order from your seat, get the Detroit Lions mobile app, tap Game Day from the bottom menu and then tap mobile ordering. Once there, you can enter your information, select what you want to eat, and then pay with your phone. You'll then get a concourse section number for where to pick up. Head to that section and find the pick up counter. 

It's so simple. 

New look Lions back at Ford Field as fans return for 2021 season

When the Lions run through the tunnel at Ford Field, they'll have a new quarterback, head coach, and front office. And that's just the beginning.

Where to get food at Ford Field

Across all three levels of the stadium, there is no shortage of food options. On the main concourse, you can get BBQ on both ends of the stadium. At section 139 is Billy Sims BBQ and at section 115 is Slows BBQ. Both Detroit legends, in their own right.

If you're looking for a sandwich, Paradise Deli at section 105 has what you need. Burgers are at Big Boy at sections 108 and 127, you can pick up a hot dog at Coney Island Dog at section 134, or sausages at Poletown in sections 103 and 120.

Of course, you've gotta have pizza and Hungry Howie's is in three locations on the main concourse - sections 111, 123, and 131. 

Scroll down for where to get your beer, cocktails, and beverages. We're gonna head upstairs next.
