Are You Ready For Some Football?

Welcome to the 96th Season of the NFL!

Detroit Lions FootballPlan a group outing to one of Michigan’s most popular venues, Ford Field, and enjoy a Lions Game!  This year, 2015, marks the 96th season of the NFL, and for Lions fans, we wait, hoping this year will finally be ours.

Our Detroit Lions have been a fixture in the city of Detroit since 1934, however, they formally joined the NFL as the Portsmouth Spartans in Portsmouth, Ohio back in 1930. Despite an often winning record in past years including four NFL Championships, the Lions remain one of only 4 teams who have yet to compete in a Super Bowl. For Lions fans, we continue to have hope that this year will be the year. Changes to coaching staff and rosters have led us to a team which is showing promise. Now,  with increased practice on reducing turnovers, a strong leader and plenty of incredible talent down-field, the Lions could be on their way to victory!

The 2015 – 2016 NFL Season begins for the Lions at home on August 13th against the NY Jets. The win/loss record against the Jets is a mixed bag with 7 wins and 6 losses since 1972.

Other preseason games include:

•    Aug 20th – Away – Redskins

While going to a Lions game is exciting, for many, the parking situation leaves something to be desired, especially if you are running late. Parking facilities around Ford Field and Comerica Park are first come/first serve. There are parking decks nearby however, they fill up fast. After this, it is a race to the closest “pay to park” location. The multi-block walk, and remembering where the car is after the game causes more than a little problem for many.
