The Lions were formed in 1929 as the Portsmouth Spartans, and played all home games in Portsmouth, Ohio. That early franchise was started as an independent football club, but was eventually forced to join the NFL in 1930 due to the onset of the Great Depression in America. The early on-field success of the Lions was not matched on the team’s financial records. Portsmouth was, at the time, the smallest city with an NFL franchise. In 1934, the team was purchased by a group of owners from Michigan and moved to Detroit.
The very first Detroit Lions tickets went on sale for the 1934 NFL season. During the team’s early history in Detroit it was wildly successful, winning four NFL Championships. However, the team has not won a title since the 1950s, and only the Arizona Cardinals have a longer championship drought than the Lions. Weary fans who purchase Detroit Lions tickets each year have watched as their team has become one of just four current franchises to never have appeared in the Super Bowl.
Despite a rough history throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, Lions’ fans have remained staunch supporters of their beloved franchise. Since the 2010 NFL season, Detroit Lions tickets sales have increased each season. The Lions entertained a total of 450,286 ticketholders at Ford Field during the 2010 season. That number has increased each season through the most recent (2013) NFL season. There were a total of 510, 369 Detroit Lions tickets sold for the 2013 season at Ford Field.
Fans that purchase Detroit Lions tickets get to see some of the NFL greatest stars each season at Ford Field. As members of the NFC North Division, the Lions play home games each season against the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers, and Chicago Bears. Unlike many of the other divisions in the NFL, these four franchises have a rich history of competing against one another, and share a close regional connection to one another that adds an additional layer of hatred between the franchises.
When the Vikings come to town, fans watch as the Lions try to stop Adrian Peterson and the ground game of Minnesota. The task becomes different when Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers come to town, challenging the Lions’ secondary with an aerial assault that brings most defenses to their knees. Of course, each visit by the Chicago Bears comes with the tough task of cracking one of the NFL’s perennially stout defenses.
