The Detroit Lions take the field soon for their first preseason game. Catch the Lions on WXYZ-TV Channel 7 throughout the NFL preseason.
(WXYZ) - Hundreds of fans joined us outside Ford Field on Saturday, July 27 to be a part of this year's commercial promoting our coverage of Detroit Lions football.
The promo spot is set to debut shortly on the air and you can watch it now right here on WXYZ.com.
Focusing on our "Lions on 7" theme, the spot features a local drum line and a number of Lions fans as they get set to watch their favorite team in action on the field.
The commercial was produced by WXYZ's award-winning promotions department, led by Dave Baumann, Tom Polk, Aaron Liversedge, Gregg Hepp and Shelly Greenberg.
Over the course of two hours on Saturday, cameras captured the many shots we needed to convey the message and get fans fired up for WXYZ's coverage of the Lions preseason games.
WXYZ will carry all four of the Lions preseason games this summer, beginning with next Friday's opener against the New York Jets.
