The City of Pontiac have failed numerous times to sell the Silverdome so it's just fallen into a massive modern ruin.
Ha! I don't even remember seeing it when I was in Detroit. Probably a better outcome for them though. The area around Ford Field isn't too bad.

Because its not in Detroit - its about 30km out in Pontiac. Also part of the issue - although this is Detroit and they love to drive!

Relevant to an earlier discussion, the Detroit Pistons in the NBA played there for a while in the 1970s and 1980s,

WAToday claiming it will be first sporting event (but no confirmation of that in the media statement):

It may be the first confirmed event - but cricket is scheduled for the 28th Jan, so unless there is delay with the Stadium, the Womens AFL won't be the first sporting event.

The journalist hasn't done his research.

Before you accuse the journalist of anything, there's a fair chance the lead was rewritten by someone else.

The Dockers women's team may still not be the first sporting event at the stadium, with an ODI international between Australia and England pencilled in for January 28, depending on whether the venue is finished in time.
The 28 January match is still officially TBC.
