If you listen to this show regularly, you know we are fans of the Detroit City FC soccer team and have a new weekly segment with soccer correspondent Fletcher Sharpe. On Thursday, the team announced it’s added a new international friendly — its third — for the 2018 season.
Le Rouge will host Italian club Frosinone Calcio at Keyworth Stadium in Hamtramck on Tuesday, July 31. The match will be presented by DTE Energy. Kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m., and tickets start at $15.
Frosinone Calcio traces its roots to 1912 and plays in the second tier of Italian soccer. They’re currently in contention to be promoted to Serie A, the top Italian league, for the 2018-2019 season.
City last weekend played host to German team FC St. Pauli — you can listen to our discussion about the match, a triumphant 6-2 loss, with Sharpe here. It also plays Mexico’s Club Necaxa on July 10.
