DETROIT, Michigan – The Detroit City Football Club announced its first-ever pre matchday sellout of Keyworth Stadium ahead of Saturday’s fixture against the El Paso Locomotive. The match is the USL Championship’s first-ever regular season game to air on ESPN.
Kickoff on Saturday is set for noon with gates opening at 10:30 a.m. To mark the early start for the nationally televised match, the Club will have special matchday features including, DCFC themed donuts from Yellow Light Donuts, games, a dj, and special brunch items from the regular matchday food truck vendors.
Detroit City will appear on a national broadcast for the second time this season. April 15’s fixture against Birmingham Legion at Keyworth – a 1-0 victory for Le Rouge – aired on ESPN Deportes.
