Model D TV: Detroit City Futbol League takes neighborhood pride to the soccer field

The first ever season of the Detroit City Futbol League started back in May. Eleven soccer teams from neighborhoods around the city -- and Hamtramck -- took to Belle Isle for the inaugural season. Each week, the league brought out nearly 300 participants, mostly from the city, but a smattering of suburbanites participated as well. Vuvuzelas were optional.

Model D writer and sometimes audio/visual mastermind Terry Parris Jr. brings us this report from the season.

Saturday, July 31, will mark the Copa Detroit, the final game of the season, to determine one neighborhood's futbol dominance in the city of Detroit. Come out for the party, for the futbol, and for Detroit. For more information on Copa Detroit, click here. Join the Detroit City Futbol League's Facebook page for the smack talk here.
