Lions fans head west for NFC Championship Game
From coast to coast, Lions fans are ready to witness history if Detroit beats the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday to advance to its first ever Super Bowl.
Driving the news: The NFC Championship Game at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., will be the team's first playoff game this season away from home.
- A watch party for about 20,000 fans at Ford Field sold out in hours on Monday, the Detroit News reports.
Meanwhile, other fans bought Bay Area-bound plane tickets or are monitoring airline prices to make the trip.
- "I figured, 'I'm going all-in; I don't care,'" Dan Ervin, who bought plane tickets for him and his son, told the Free Press.
- "There's been so much buy-in and so much suffering for so long. To see it actually happen is inspiring."
