In each end zone, the main video display will be more than twice the size of the current screen. The new displays will measure 39.5 feet high by 152 feet wide, according to a Detroit Lions news release.

The Detroit Lions say a total of 210,000 square feet, including the Corner Lounge and suites, will be renovated or completely remodeled.
