DCFC Hosts NPSL Midwest Region Championship Sunday Afternoon

Detroit City can advance to the national semifinals today.

July 21, 2019 - 12:08 pm

HAMTRAMCK (97.1 The Ticket) -- Detroit City FC is in search of its second National Premier Soccer League Midwest Regional title in three seasons. 

Le Rouge will play for the crown Sunday at 1 p.m. against Cleveland SC, the No. 1 seed in the Midwest, at Keyworth Stadium in Hamtramck. The winner will advance to the NPSL national semifinals, a feat DCFC accomplished in 2017, before losing on penalty kicks at home to Midland-Odessa FC.

Detroit City beat Minneapolis City SC 2-0 Friday night at Keyworth, while Cleveland beat Rochester Lancers 6-4 after extra time in the first semifinal.

DCFC won the Great Lakes Conference and secured the No. 2 seed in the Midwest behind Cleveland, who earned the top spot per the NPSL's points-per-game system. Should Detroit City advance to the national semifinals, they'll likely have to hit the road in the next round.

The game will be streamed live on the DCFC website.
