Detroit Soccer Club, or known simply as Motown, was founded during the Automotive boom following WWII as the Ford Company team. All the major car companies had their own teams and the matches were some of the biggest draws in the State of Michigan. The Auto Cup match (Annual championship of the automotive companies’ teams which had a full league in the late 40s until the mid 50s) in 1949 between the General Motors team and the Ford team filled Ann Arbor's Michigan Stadium. In 1956 Ford became a publicly traded company and the company team broke off and became Detroit SC but they’ve embraced the nickname Motown from the beginning. They currently play in Belle Isle Park on Belle Isle. It’s one of the only stadiums in the world that is on a river island and you can also see 2 countries from its upper decks. (Canada and the United States)
The team's logo was changed from the Ford oval to more or less its current look at its founding in 1956. The crest takes its elements from the Detroit city flag. The original designer didn't understand the symbolism of the Detroit flag (each quarter represented a country that ruled Detroit) and reduced the number of elements to fit the space. The corrections were never made and there are still 2 lions in the upper right corner where there should be 3, 1 Fluer-de-lys where there should be 5, and 9 stars and stripes where there should be 13. Of course, the team is known as "Two Lions" because of it.
The uniforms are pretty classic and somewhat unique in the world of soccer. They feature striping that's more commonly seen on the American gridiron with a navy jersey for the primary, and a gold jersey for the change.
