Have a drink, raise money for Detroit City FC Keyworth Stadium development


  • Detroit City FC/Facebook
The owners of the Detroit City FC are gearing up for the first of five happy hours to raise funds for the development of Keyworth Stadium in Hamtramck.

To be held at Suzy's at 2942 Evaline St. on Monday, Nov. 30 Le Rouge fans will get a chance to learn the latest on the investment campaign from DCFC ownership. Thus far, Le Rouge has garnered more than 100 investor support. The club seeks to raise the necessary funding to rehabilitate the 79-year-old stadium.

Each happy hour will take place from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. The following event will be held Dec. 16 at Kelly's Bar at 2403 Holbrook Ave; Jan. 8 at Bumbo's at 3001 Holbrook Ave., and Jan. 20 at Whiskey in the Jar at 2741 Yemans St.

You might recall that the Hamtramck School Board approved DCFC's Keyworth Stadium lease in September.

Under the agreement, Hamtramck Public Schools has set up a multi-year lease that will allow DCFC to use the stadium for up to 25 events per year. DCFC is expected to raise funds to rehab the facility, which will cost an estimated $750,000 to $1 million. The rehab work could start as early as October, and is expected to be completed in April 2016.
