Title: Soccer in Detroit?
Post by: BigRedDog on November 02, 2017, 09:18:50 PM
I see some big names in Detroit area business are wanting to bring a Soccer team into town.

Any suggestions for a team name and mascot (please try to keep it somewhat G rated)?

Well it will probably be funded by the Illitches so the mascot should probably be Pizza Pizza man. Name it pepperoni field

The plan for the new location was announced alongside an expanded partnership between Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores and Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert that will now include the William Clay Ford family, which owns the Detroit Lions. The group hopes the addition of the Ford family and Ford Field will make for a successful bid for an MLS franchise in Detroit.

I see today the Ford's might be involved. Maybe the state can fund another stadium and we can then only guess what the name could be if they honored the taxpayers for their investment.
