Why it Matters for Detroit Lions

The Lions are considering a potential move from their current team headquarters in Allen Park, Michigan. The team has outgrown the facility, which was state-of-the-art when it was built in 2002. The Lions have struggled with space issues, especially during training camp, where the infrastructure is not up to par for maximizing the fan experience. The team’s president, Rod Wood, has been exploring other options, including visiting other teams’ training camp facilities. While a decision on a move is not expected this year, the Lions are carefully considering their options.

“We’re considering whether we’re going to continue to stay there and put more money into the facility or be better off looking at locations elsewhere in metro Detroit, where we’d have more space for the team and training camp for the fans,” Wood said Tuesday evening at the league meetings. “But right now, in the short run, we’re going to stay where we are. Do the best we can to get as many fans in there and have the experience as good as it can be.”

“I kind of had it as one of my goals this year, was to kind of decide are we staying or are we going to relocate,” Wood said. “I’m not going to hit that goal because I’ve not made that decision yet or recommendation. But it’s a near-term thing we need to decide.”
