Spirit Of Detroit Statue To Only Feature Winners Jerseys
It is one of the iconic images of Detroit, The Spirit of Detroit Statue. Over the years it has featured various sports team jerseys from the Lions to the Red Wings. There has been a change that will change what is placed on the statue.
According to the Detroit News, a new policy in Detroit will limit on what clothing will be placed on the statue.
It will now be for champions only. If the Lions, Tigers, Pistons, Red Wings or other teams want their jersey on the statue they have to win a title. With the title win they are also asked to contribute $25,000 to statue maintenance.
Each time a jersey is added and removed it is said to hurt the covering on the statue.
So until we see a championship again in Detroit, you will see the statue as it was intended.
