Motown's suddenly got a lot going on soccer-wise. 2011 saw the creation of a co-ed citywide Detroit City Futbol League http://detroitcityfutbol.com , followed by an indoor league during the fall and winter, and now a legit minor league soccer team called Le Rouge http://detcityfc.com . This tour points out some of the places where people play along with the neighborhoods represented in the Futbol League. Let's kick some balls, people!
