We’ve heard about the possibility of a Major League Soccer team in Detroit for some time now. We’ve even heard that the folks who bought the Silverdome have already applied for an expansion team. Now today we’re finally seeing what their wild renovation plans may actually look like.
So, uh, yeah. There it is folks. The Silverdome with a soccer field, concert hall and a basketball arena.
I still admit, I will have to see this to believe it but if they can pull it off, good on them. I won’t go into Detroit as a MLS market right now but it is good to see other places at least trying right now with stadiums in place and at least some kind of plan. They may not be sexy as other cities to expand to but down the road if this project gets done it may not be the worst idea.
One final thought, would the club be called Detroit FC? The image has ‘DFC’ in the stands. Very interesting.
