Spring in Michigan doesn’t just mean baseball. It also means soccer – or, for purists – “football.”

This weekend, Detroit City FC kicks off its season with some international friendlies on this year’s schedule.

Also of note: Last week, Major League Soccer (MLS) officials were in town, as Detroit continues pressing its case for an MLS team.

Sean Mann, a founder and co-owner of Detroit City FC, joined Stateside today to discuss the outlook for this year’s season. Listen above to hear him talk about the secret to Detroit City FC’s grassroots success and what he’s hoping the 2018 season will bring.
