Ford Field Not A Typical Dome Stadium

The idea Ford Field is a football stadium hosting basketball games this weekend is essentially true.
But some of the criticism about Ford Field as a host venue for the Final Four is not justified.
First of all, it is not a domed stadium. And it has subtle features that set it apart from other massive indoor stadiums, such as the wall from the old Hudson's warehouse.
The sight lines for Ford Field have been criticized, but a stadium of this size just can't win in that regard. A basketball court is much smaller than a football field or even a hockey rink. There aren't going to be a lot of good seats - regardless.
The idea of attending the Final Four, especially for those from the host schools, is to be part of what is a special moment. Ford Field is terrific from that aspect. It's probably the best indoor stadium in the nation.
