HAMTRAMCK, Mich. – The Detroit City Football Club spring season was officially canceled this week, but there is hope the team will take the field later this year.

The National Independent Soccer Association announced that the men’s spring season was canceled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but the league is planning to begin the fall season in August. A potential summer season is also in the works.

The full cancellation comes after the league suspended play for 30 days on March 12.
