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.

In renderings for the new deal between Ford Field and the proposed MLS team ownership, the Detroit News reported that the stands are selling DCFC merchandise. Here’s a tweet showing the image.

And here’s the apology from design firm ROSSETTI.

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?
