The event will be taking place at Ford Field in front of select season ticket holders and media. Additionally, it looks like there will be some players in attendance. Eric Ebron shared his excitement for the event on Twitter Wednesday evening:

To drum up even more excitement over the event, the Lions released a quick video of several players’ reaction upon seeing the new uniforms for the first time.

Here’s what we already know about the new uniforms:
- There will be four new uniforms unveiled.
- Black will no longer be part of the color scheme. This means one of the four new uniforms will be a Color Rush jersey, since last year’s Color Rush uniforms were all black.
- The new uniforms will feature Detroit’s new font, which was unveiled a few months ago on the official Lions website (new font is on the bottom):

- Potential pictures of the new uniforms were released a few weeks ago. Rod Wood would not confirm nor deny that these "leaks" were accurate:

- New uniforms will be immediately avaiable for purchase for those in attendance. For those of you at home, Wood said jerseys will be available for purchase on the team’s website on Friday morning.
For now, set your calendars and alarms for 8 p.m. ET Thursday night and bookmark the team’s official Facebook page. Stick around here, too, as we’ll have extensive coverage of the event all night.
