Detroit City FC will take to the pitch in support of youth soccer in Detroit on Saturday, June 6 at 7:30 p.m. at Cass Tech High School.
The National Premier Soccer League regular-season match against the Madison 56ers will benefit Detroit PAL, a non-profit organization whose initiatives help more than 11,000 local children build character and life skills through athletic, academic and leadership programs each year.
One of the highlights of the night will be a silent auction of the specially designed commemorative jerseys Le Rouge will wear during the match to benefit the organization.
Blending its passions for soccer and the community, Detroit City FC has built a lasting connection with Detroit PAL through the years, helping to operate free soccer clinics and giving free season tickets to all Detroit PAL soccer players.
Admission to Saturday's match is free for Detroit PAL players who wear their PAL jersey.
After the match, each participating player’s jersey will be auctioned off to the highest bidder in a silent auction held at Cass Tech. Additionally, a limited number of jerseys will be sold at the official DCFC merchandise table on the stadium concourse. The funds earned in the auction and a portion of the proceeds of the jerseys sold at the match will go to support Detroit PAL soccer programs.
This season, Detroit City teamed up with Henry Ford Health System and Detroit PAL to create the Community Champs Program, which allows thousands of PAL soccer players to participate in clinics with City players and attend home matches for free.
Detroit City is proud to continue its support of Detroit PAL and its mission to better the lives of the community’s youth through its athletic programs.
