Complimentary Tickets for Ford Motor Company Employees and Agency Employees
As a partner of the Detroit Lions and Ford Field, we are offering Ford Motor Company employees and agency employees four complimentary tickets each to see the "Spartans in The D".
Watch Florida Atlantic University host Michigan State University at Ford Field on Saturday, September 11, 2010 at 12pm. This will be MSU’s first football game at Ford Field.
Tickets will be available at the Ford Conference and Event Center on Village Drive in Dearborn from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, September 9 and Friday, September 10 or while supplies last.
Ford has a few thousand people working at Dearborn, so you would have to think plenty of the freebies will be gobbled up. Not sure how much this helps FAU’s bottom line, but it will keep the game being played at a half-empty stadium.
