With the election only two months away, Detroit is working on making sure everything goes smoothly. The Lions and Pistons had previously stated that they will be supporting the election, now the Tigers and Red Wings will also be joining the forces.
All four teams will be providing their fields and arenas as well as using their social media platforms.
“Elections are the foundation of our democracy and we are committed to doing all we can to support the upcoming election,” Chris Granger, group president for sports and entertainment divisions at Ilitch Holdings, Inc., said in a statement. “Not only are our facilities uniquely suited to support the needs of the community and the Secretary of State leading up to Election Day, our sports teams provide voices to share information and fulfill our civic obligation to encourage all Michiganders to exercise their right to vote on Nov. 3.”
