    As much as I like what DCFC is doing, and as much as I have talked about them on here...it's still a loooooooooooooong way off of doing anything.

    They have less than 2,000 fans supporting them. They hosted some USMNT matches not too long ago, pitiful attendance. Good for them in rallying behind DCFC, no doubt about that. I am glad it's going well.

    It could all be rumors and such, but I've heard they think they will be an MLS club in the future. I know I saw plans for the Pontiac Silverdome to be turned into a soccer stadium in hopes of attracting an MLS franchise. It simply will not work. It shouldn't work.

    Could there be a NASL or USL Pro franchise there in the future? Possibly. But, a top-flight professional soccer team won't ever happen in Detroit.

    I am extremely happy that their NPSL team is supported well. Those college players and amateur players are living it up playing there. It would be a dream to play there for any prospective amateur player. Keep it up, no doubt.

    They have what any other amateur (or pro) team needs...community buy-in and support. You have to have it. They have a definite grassroots movement to support the club. Detroit also needs something positive going for it...not much is happening there so DCFC will be there for the city.

    Five years later, Detroit City FC is one of the most exciting sports stories in a sports-crazy town. The semipro team, consisting of college players from the area and some older former pros, now sells out the stands at Cass Tech High School regularly for matches against regional teams like the Fort Pitt Regiment and the Erie Admirals of the National Premier Soccer League. Wright says the crowds of 3,500 are so consistent that there's a thought to moving to a larger home in nearby Hamtramck.

    Really? Keyworth Stadium? I'm originally from Hamtramck, and can think of about, oh, several hundred billion better places to play than that.

    ...it's bigger and can handle more people isn't that the whole point? Is there something else of equal quality that will also allow them to have more people attend games?

    No doubt about that...but, DCFC has done a nice job of "revitalizing" Detroit through sport. I hope it continues. Maybe it'll help clean up Hamtramck too...

    Maybe 7000 seat Keyworths 3M reno if it goes thru would be an acceptable stadium for a move up to NASL for Detroit City FC in the future.

    very interesting...

    http://www.thehamtramckreview.com/soccer-league-seeks-to-relocate-to-keyworth-stadium/

    Todd Kropp, Chief Operating Officer of the group, asked for permission to begin a structural assessment of the stadium’s grandstands at no cost to the district. That project, he said, will cost the organization $10,000.
    In exchange, he asked the board to apply for a grant to perform an environmental survey of the stadium’s grounds.
