or check out our post from last year). Detroit City Football Club (DCFC) is a minor league soccer team that plays in the National Premier Soccer League's Midwest Great Lakes Conference. It's a grass roots organization that works hard to bring soccer to those that love it in Detroit, while representing the city positively.
Going to a DCFC game is something that everyone should do this summer. Like, seriously, it's a lot of fun- soccer fan or not. You can't help but to get caught up in the energy, especially if you sit with the hooligans, which I highly recommend. They're on their feet the whole game. There is smoke, as well as lots of yelling and craziness. Make sure to pick up a scarf, t-shirt or jacket when you're there so you can get all decked out in Le Rouge gear and fit right in.

The home opener against AFC Cleveland on Friday is a special game. DCFC have a particular goal for the night, besides kicking Cleveland's ass of course. The club wants to have the largest crowd anywhere in the National Premier Soccer League. I know the games last year had pretty good turnouts, so why not try it out yourself this year and help them out with some Detroit spirit of your own? If you get there early you'll even get a special treat courtesy of Solid Dudes Kitchen. Head to Harry's for pre-game festivities and to join the rest of the supporters marching in to the game at Cass Tech High School. The gates open at 6:30 p.m. and kick-off is at 7:30 p.m.
Another reason why these soccer games are so good is that they are easy on the wallet at only $5 a ticket! If you're a big fan, you can buy a season ticket for only $35 for all 8 games. Word has it that there will be a lot of good, local music played at the games this year as well! Go Detroit!
