Detroit City Football Club

In Detroit City Football Club’s (DCFC) inaugural season, the minor league soccer team, saw crowds up to 1,500 spectators at their home field, New Cass Technical High School in Detroit. Supporter groups like the Northern Guard Supporters with 722 members by the end of the season and Motor City Supporters fueled the stand of fans with music, chanting and smoke bombs.
