Sponsors & Sponsorship Opportunities

MARKETING WITH DETROIT CITY FC

Detroit City FC brings an inclusive sporting experience to downtown Detroit, provides affordable entertainment to an under-served soccer market, and serves as the recreational and social focal point for a resurgent city.

As a sponsor, you will be partnering with an organization that has quickly established itself as the embodiment of:

  • The small independent business, with authenticity and grassroots techniques, that is redefining Detroit and portraying it in a positive light in regional media and beyond.
  • The new wave of young professionals who are moving into the city core in droves.
  • The untapped passion for soccer in Metro Detroit across diverse communities ranging from suburban Detroit youth soccer players and their families, to the growing and under served ethnic urban enclaves in Southwest Detroit, Hamtramck, Dearborn and beyond.
  • A community of Detroit residents of all stripes celebrating their love of sports through our games and organized bar nights, which regularly draw hundreds of supporters. Between DCFC games and the Detroit City Futbol League, our events have become the social and recreational epicenter of an iconic city.

Sponsorship opportunities include:

  • Jersey Sponsorship
