    The team sold 20 percent more season tickets for the 2015 season than the 2014 season. Season tickets account for more than half of the capacity of Cass Tech, with single game tickets and group sales accounting for the remainder.

    “The historic demand for season tickets not only shows the passion for soccer in Detroit but the entrenched love that has grown for this club in just four years,” co-owner Alex Wright said.

    Individual single game tickets will be made available online starting on March 5.

    You can view the 2015 season schedule here.

    Given the interest in the season ticket card, it is likely that each home game will sell out in advance, and pre-purchasing is strongly recommended. Group tickets also remain available. For more information, contact general manager Donovan Powell at

    Founded in 2012, Detroit City FC has assembled a team that has gone undefeated at home in the regular season for two straight years, and built a reputation as one of the nation’s great minor league soccer organizations. They led the National Premier Soccer League in attendance with over 24,000 attendees over eight matches at Cass Tech during the 2014 season. Le Rouge will begin their fourth season on April 18, 2015 at Hurley Field in Berkley, with an exhibition game against Saginaw Valley St. University. Stay tuned for further details, announcements and events as the season approaches.

  • Detroit City FC 2015 Schedule Announced

    2015 will feature a new table, new opponents, a new playoff format and an additional match, but the old rivalries remain.

    With Detroit City FC’s fourth season just a few months away, the club is excited to announce the release of the 2015 National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) Midwest Region schedule.

    The much-anticipated schedule features a new-look division and playoff format, as well as new opponents.dcfc2

    The consolidation of the former Great Lakes East, West and Central Conference tables results in a 13-team Midwest Region, with each team playing 12 matches. At the conclusion of the 2015 regular season, the top four teams in the table will advance to a single-elimination tournament that will determine the Midwest’s representative in the NPSL National semifinals, which will be played the last weekend in July.

    Previously members of the NPSL Central Conference, the Minnesota TwinStars, Madison 56ers and Minnesota United Reserves have been added to City’s crop of foes.

    Detroit City will kick off the 2015 NPSL campaign at its home confines of Cass Technical High School against AFC Cleveland at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 15.

    Despite the new look of the schedule, City will carry on several rivalries. Le Rouge will look to capture its third-consecutive Rust Belt Derby trophy -- awarded to the team with the highest point totals in head-to-head matches between City, FC Buffalo and AFC Cleveland. Detroit travels to Buffalo on May 23 after opening up against Cleveland. The club will also share a home-and-home series with local opponents Michigan Stars and Lansing United, who ended Detroit’s dreams of postseason play after a 2-2 draw in the final game of the 2014 regular season.

    Adding to City’s usual friendly match against the Windsor Stars near the end of the summer, two additional opponents will be welcomed to Cass Tech. On May 9, Le Rouge will take on the Muskegon Risers. The opponent for the final friendly, currently slated for June 17, will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

    All nine home games on the regular season schedule will be included as part of the 2015 season ticket “Red Card” package. A limited amount of the Red Cards exist. They are available online at while they last.

  • Le Rouge Review: Looking back on the NCAA season

    With the NCAA men’s soccer season finally coming to a close in the coming weeks, it’s time to look back and check in on how DCFC players fared over the course of the season.

    Michigan State was the last team standing with DCFC ties — Ben Pirmann and Kylie Stannard are assistant coaches — but the Spartans were eliminated from the NCAA Tournament on Dec. 6 with a 3-2 loss to Providence in the Elite Eight. Michigan State stood as the team with DCFC ties that enjoyed the greatest success in 2014, compiling an overall record of 12-5-6.


    As far as the rest of the teams go with Detroit City FC ties, the subsequent list provides insight into each school’s performance with individual statistics and achievements for Le Rouge players.

    Butler: Jeff Adkins finished the season as one of the Bulldogs top scorers in 2014. He netted five goals and added three assists in his sophomore season as Butler finished the year with a 6-7-5 record.

    Coastal Carolina: In Bret Mollon’s second season as the assistant coach and goalkeepers coach with the Chanticleers, the team advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Clemson. As champions of the Big South Tournament, Coastal Carolina enjoyed a stellar season, posting an overall record of 16-6-1.

    Detroit: The Titans finished the season with a 9-7-4 mark, as Matt Ybarra and Cameron Roberts played large roles in a respectable season. Ybarra ranked second on the team in scoring with two goals and six assists, starting all 20 games in 2014. Meanwhile, Roberts started 16 matches and recorded one assist while providing a steady presence in the midfield.

    Michigan: Four DCFC players call Ann Arbor home, and each played a pivotal role in the Wolverines up-and down season. Michigan finished the season with a 6-9-3 record to overcome a slow start to the season.

    Colin McAtee enjoyed a breakout season, scoring more than twice as many points as the next Wolverine player with eight goals and two assists. William Mellors-Blair, a recent transfer from Georgia State, added three goals and two assists in his first season at Michigan.

    Tyler Arnone and Nick Lewin round out the rest of the Le Rouge players. Arnone recorded one goal and three assists in 16 starts, and Lewin provided consistent play on the back line, starting in all 18 matches.

    Saginaw Valley State: Aleksander Isaevski led the Cardinals with nine assists this season, tacking on two goals along the way to help guide SVSU to a 14-5-2 record. Craig Neal played a critical role, too, scoring nine goals and recording seven assists for a team-high 25 points. Zach Vasold and Michael Lamb both made significant contributions. Vasold’s four points in 20 games played wasn’t close to indicative of his consistency that helped anchor the midfield. Lamb pitched in with one goal in nine appearances.

    The Cardinals enjoyed great success in the GLIAC this season before a magical run ended in the Round of 16 of the Division-II Tournament.

    Oakland: This season was one to remember for the Grizzles as they captured their first Horizon League regular-season title since 2012 and their first NCAA Tournament berth in four years.

    Accumulating a 10-7-3 record, Oakland rebounded nicely from a shaky start to the 2014 campaign. Each DCFC player on the roster — Joey Tinnion, Shawn Lawson and Raphael Reynolds — ranked among the team’s top eight in scoring this year.

    Tinnion and Lawson each netted four goals and one assist, while Reynolds added a goal and an assist to the stat sheet. All three players played in every game this season.

    Western Michigan: The Broncos finished their season with an 8-7-4 record. In their final match, they nearly pulled off an upset at Akron in the MAC Tournament, but couldn’t quite hold on.

    Connor Furgason finished the season ranked second among the team in scoring with four goals and two assists in 16 starts. Sean Hazen started all 19 games on his way to recording two assists.

  • Le Rouge Review: Michigan State continues rolling, Coastal Carolina falters

    Michigan State: The Spartans (12-4-5) kept their NCAA Tournament title hopes alive — just barely — with a shootout victory against Washington on Sunday. Michigan State was on the ropes, trailing 2-0 heading into the 75th minute, but two late goals in 12 minutes helped force extra time with a 2-2 scoreline. Following a scoreless battle in both extra time sessions, the Spartans ultimately defeated the Huskies 4-3 on penalties.

    Ben Pirmann and Kylie Stannard will look ahead to a matchup against Providence at noon on Dec. 6. The game will be played in East Lansing.

    Coastal Carolina: In Bret Mollon’s second year as the goalkeeping coach for the Chanticleers, they enjoyed another successful run in the NCAA Tournament. Coastal Carolina advanced to the second round where it dropped a 2-1 result against Clemson. The Chanticleers trailed 2-0 in the 60th minute before netting a goal one minute later to half the deficit. Despite a furious comeback attempt, Coastal Carolina’s season came to a conclusion in Monday’s 2-1 loss. It finishes the year with a 16-6-1 record.
