PARKING

Although there are options for parking on the street near the stadium, you may find it easier to park at the Fowling Warehouse, where there is plenty of secure parking and from which the supporters march to the stadium originates.

The Fowling Warehouse can be found at 3901 Christopher St., Hamtramck, MI 48212

 

PRE-GAMING

There are many local bars worth visiting within walking distance of Keyworth Stadium, including the New Dodge, Motor City Sports Bar, Bumbo’s and the Painted Lady — but many members of the Northern Guard gather before matches at the Fowling Warehouse.

THE MARCH

The march leaves the Fowling Warehouse one hour before kickoff. Supporters who pre-game at other bars are encouraged to join the march at the corner Roosevelt St. and Gallagher Ave. 30 minutes prior to the match, where supporters will gather prior to marching into the stadium.

The Fowling Warehouse can be found at 3901 Christopher St., Hamtramck, MI 48212

TICKETS

Tickets for all matches can be purchased at the gate, but we recommend that you purchase them in advance (don’t risk missing out because the match sold out) from the club’s website.

You can find single-game tickets here or purchase a season ticket here.

 

KEYWORTH STADIUM

The new home of Detroit City Football Club, Keyworth Stadium can be found at 3201 Roosevelt St., Hamtramck, MI 48212.

The stadium was built in 1936 as part of the Works Progress Administration and was opened by then-President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It also played host to then-Democratic Senator John F. Kennedy, who made a campaign stop there in 1960. The stadium is owned by Hamtramck Public Schools and in addition to being the home of DCFC, plays host to football and soccer games for Hamtramck High School.

In 2015-2016, Detroit City FC undertook a crowd-based investment program, raising $741,250 to renovate the stadium from the club’s supporters.

Visitors to the stadium enter at the main gate, at the corner of Roosevelt St. and Gallagher Ave.

 

 WHERE TO SIT

The supporters section is on the east side of the stadium (opposite the entrance gate and press box). Everyone is more than welcome to join the Northern Guard Supporters in that section, just please understand that you should expect the following:

  • It will be loud
  • It will be smoky (many supporters bring bandanas or scarves to cover their mouths and noses)
  • It will be vulgar (if swearing bothers you, the supporter section may not be the place for you)
  • Be prepared to stand for the full 90 (our players don’t get a rest, so we don’t take one, either)
  • Have fun
  • Don’t be an asshole
