A professional American football team with its home in Detroit is called the Detroit Lions. The National Football Conference’s North Division is where the Lions play in the National Football League. The home games are held in Downtown Detroit at Ford Field.
On July 12, 1930, the Portsmouth Spartans football team made its NFL debut. The team was founded in Portsmouth, Ohio. In 1934, the franchise was moved to Detroit due of financial difficulties. In honor of the Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise from the city, the Tigers, the team was also given a new name: the Lions.
Before the Super Bowl era, between 1935 and 1957, the Lions won four NFL Championship Games. The squad has the longest playoff winless streak in the league dating back to when it won the league championship in 1957. They are the only current Super Bowl franchise that has never taken part in the title game.
The Lions decided to officially incorporate cheerleaders in the team in June 2016. The group also hired Rebecca Girard-Smoker to lead the cheerleading squad. She previously worked as the Detroit Pistons dance team’s coach. The Detroit Lions are the only NFC team to have never participated in a Super Bowl and the oldest NFL team to have never made an appearance in one.
