Pontiac Silverdome is a former NFL football stadium that played home to the Detroit Lions from 1975 until 2001 when the team got a new stadium. The stadium was also home to the Detroit Pistons from 1978-1988, and a number of other sports teams during its time.
Ground broke on the stadium in September of 1973 and it opened in august of 1975. The stadium closed in February of 2006 and was reopened in 2010. The current owners of the stadium is a company called Triple Properties and they purchased the derelict stadium for a bit over $580,000 in 2009 reports mlive.
The company plans to rehab the facility and use it for other things. As the facility is undergoing repairs, Triple Properties has decided to start selling off some of the signs and seats from the stadium. The signs include some that say "Home of Super Bowl XVI."
The auction is being handed by a company called RJM and there will be tours offered of the old stadium so people can see what they are bidding on. The company is selling off 80,000 seats at prices ranging from $100 for a single seat to $465 for four adjoining seats. There is no word on how much the company expects to raise from the auction. Fans of the stadium and the teams that played there in the past may want to bid on the items to have a bit of the stadium to remember good times by. It’s unclear what the stadium will be used for later.
