With the 2016 season right around the corner, Detroit City FC announced its sponsorship lineup last night at its second annual Soccer Prom.
A night full of celebrations, the event featured several announcements regarding the club’s new and returning sponsors.
Headlining the list is Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers, who returns as DCFC’s title sponsor. Last season, Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers was named the club’s first-ever title sponsor.
As title sponsor, Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers returns to the front of the home and away jerseys worn by DCFC players for the new season, which were also unveiled last night at the Majestic Theater. The partnership includes online streaming of all of City’s home National Premier Soccer League matches and its international friendly against FC United of Manchester on Saturday, May 28 at Keyworth Stadium.
Last year, DCFC livestreams on detcityfc.com presented by MDCD reached about 3,000 viewers per match from 50 different countries around the world.
Additionally, DCFC will host several youth clinics thanks to MDCD during the summer season for children ages six through 12. Details about this year’s clinics will be released at a later date.
Joining MDCD on the 2016 Detroit City home and away jerseys are Faygo, the Official Pop of Detroit City FC, M1 Imaging, the Official MRI Center and Man of the Match sponsor, and Henry Ford Health System, the Official Sports Medicine Provider and sponsor of Le Rouge’s Community Champ program.
The jerseys are available for purchase at the DCFC club shop at 2750 Yemans Street starting today and will be available for purchase online at detcityfcstore.com in the coming weeks.
Detroit City will serve alcohol at every home match at Keyworth Stadium. Le Rouge announced Stroh’s as an official team beer, which will be served at every home match. DCFC will also serve spirits, including Larceny Bourbon, at the Larceny Bar at the stadium.
The club has partnered with Axle Brewing Company, the Official Beer Partner of DCFC, and Blake’s Hard Cider Company, the Official Hard Cider of DCFC, to create exclusive branded beer and hard cider. Supporters may enjoy CITY Pale Ale by Axle and Cider ‘Til I Die by Blake’s at all DCFC home matches.
