When I asked Sean Grogan (@RiseAM_ on Twitter) to be a guest on the podcast, I didn’t know much about Detroit’s soccer scene.
But what I learned, and what I hope we highlight in our talk, is that Detroit’s soccer scene is thriving.

Kudos to the people of Detroit for building something genuine. And kudos to those same people for staying genuine in the midst of the news that a couple of NBA owners are buying their way to the top of the food chain and leap frogging right over what an amazing group of supporters, families, coaches, players, and owners have been building for years.
This is an interview with an investor of Detroit City F.C. and a story of how things got started and the state of Detroit soccer today.
