“This is something we’ve wanted to give our fans for quite some time,” said Detroit City FC co-owner Sean Mann. “Not only will it be a match-up of two organizations that have redefined what an American soccer club can be, but it will also be a chance for some of the best soccer fans in the country to come together in the stands.”

Both clubs deserve credit for growing the beautiful game at a grass roots level. Matches like these will be sure to draw eyes from all over the country and all levels of the sport.
