It’s a flap that design firm Rosetti has already apologized for, but it’s another slight in the ongoing saga between the crowdfunded Detroit City Football Club and the bid for the Major League Soccer team.

And here’s the apology from design firm ROSSETTI.
In regards to the recent Ford Field renderings which incorrectly included DCFC merchandise: ROSSETTI takes full responsibility for our mistake and want to express our sincere apologies. We’re fixing the renderings ASAP.

There seems to be little love lost between the two groups. Earlier, the billionaire ownership team tried to register Detroit City Soccer Club as a trademark and were denied. A request is pending for “Motor City Soccer Club” as well as names close to that.
One has to ask: Why was the DCFC merchandise even there in the first place?
