As the Detroit Lions gear up for their 90th season, the team is excited to unveil a series of celebrations to honor this milestone in club history throughout the 2023-2024 NFL League year. Season-long festivities will include the introduction of a special logo, set to make a grand entrance at Ford Field and on the Lions uniform.
A Logo with a Vintage Twist
Drawing inspiration from the team’s logo during the 1960s (1961-1969), the 90th season logo pays tribute to Detroit Lions history. Fans can expect to see the logo proudly displayed in-stadium at Ford Field. It will also be prominently featured as a jersey patch on the players’ uniforms.
Detroit Lions Principal Owner and Chair Sheila Hamp expressed her excitement about the upcoming celebrations. “Celebrating 90 seasons of Lions football is truly amazing,” she said. “My family is honored to have been associated with the organization for 60 of those years, and we cherish the relationships the team has with the NFL, the city of Detroit, and our incredible fans around the world. We look forward to sharing this milestone with our fans throughout the upcoming season.”
A Journey Through Time
The Detroit Lions’ story began in Portsmouth, Ohio, before relocating to Detroit in 1934. Their inaugural season kicked off that same year at the University of Detroit Stadium. As part of the 90th season festivities, fans will be treated to a display of artifacts from significant moments in Lions history. These will be showcased throughout Ford Field’s concourses.
Notable memorabilia to be exhibited include the Pro Football Hall of Fame jacket of 2004 inductee Barry Sanders. Furthermore, there will be a game ball from the 1950s, a 1957 NFL Championship ring, and other items from the team’s modern era.
