Since 2012, Detroit City FC has established itself as one of North America's most talked about soccer teams. Their grassroots organization works to satisfy the market for soccer in Detroit, represent the city in a positive light, and build community through soccer. Detroit City FC is dedicated to supporting the city of Detroit and building community through partnerships and philanthropy—living their motto—"Passion for our city. Passion for the game."
The team's nickname is Le Rouge, a reference to the River Rouge that flows through Detroit and many of its suburbs. The fleur-de-lis motif emblazoned on their uniforms pays homage to France, who founded Detroit in 1701.
