The club was created as the Portsmouth Spartans in 1930 in Portsmouth, Ohio, before moving to Detroit for the 1934 NFL season and adopting its present name. Home games for the Lions are now held at Ford Field in Detroit’s downtown.
The team is controlled by Martha Ford, who is the owner and chief executive. The franchise worth of the club was calculated to be about 2.1 billion dollars. However, before the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, the Detroit Lions had won four NFL titles (1935, 1952, 1953, 1957). The Lions last appeared in the playoffs in 2016, when they were defeated in the NFC wild card game by the Seattle Seahawks.
