Detroit City FC to Open Soccer Facility at Former Ice Rink in Detroit
DETROIT — Detroit City FC has unveiled plans to open a 75,000-square-foot indoor soccer facility in Detroit. Located in the former City Sports Center ice skating rink at 3401 E. Lafayette St., the new Detroit City Fieldhouse is currently undergoing renovations and is projected to open in September 2018. Detroit City FC is financing the renovations to the new facility, including installing new turf, energy-efficient lighting and providing additional cosmetic upgrades. A clubhouse will eventually be built between the two fields. Detroit City Futbol League, a neighborhood-based recreational adult soccer league that has been in operation since 2010 and includes more than 32 teams, will use the facility. The property will also become home to youth soccer clubs and leagues. City Sports Center formerly served as a practice facility for the Detroit Red Wings.
