Detroit City FC is set to host Michigan State University men’s soccer in a preseason friendly at The Corner Ballpark presented by Adient, home of Detroit PAL, on Saturday, April 20 at 5 PM.
Admission for City vs. State is $5. Tickets will be released closer to the match and will not be included in 2019 season ticket packages.
“Since our very beginning, we’ve always had strong ties to Michigan State’s soccer program and have a huge amount respect for the staff and players,” said DCFC CEO Sean Mann. “Coming off their historic 2018 campaign, we’re looking forward to an entertaining match against the Spartans at a great new Detroit facility.”
Detroit City FC is gearing up for a big 2019 season that will feature a new league, a longer season and new head coach Trevor James at the helm, while Michigan State men’s soccer is coming off one of its most successful seasons to date – a year that saw the Spartans advance to the NCAA College Cup for the first time since 1968.
The preseason friendly is the second preseason match between DCFC and MSU, with their last meeting on April 25, 2015.
Located at the historic Tiger Stadium site, The Corner Ballpark opened as Detroit PAL’s permanent home in March 2018. Detroit PAL impacts the lives of more than 14,000 children each year through their athletic, academic and leadership development programs. Detroit City FC is proud to continue its ongoing partnership with Detroit PAL. Last year, Detroit City FC and Detroit PAL launched the DCFC/Detroit PAL Select Program, a low to no-cost program for youth soccer players in Detroit.
