The Lions had been one of a few NFL teams without cheerleaders.
They have decided to reverse course and will feature cheerleaders starting this season, they announced Monday.
The Lions will have tryouts for cheerleaders starting Saturday, June 25 at Ford Field. Registration is required ($25) and information is available at http://detroitlions.com/cheerleaders or by calling (313) 262-2300.
The Lions' cheerleading team will be introduced in August and will make its regular-season debut at the team’s home opener Sept. 18 against the Titans.
