Detroit City FC offers free tickets to Tigers fans after opening day postponed
DETROIT –The American Professional Baseball League has canceled all openers scheduled for March 31, pushing back Detroit’s beloved Opening Day celebration.
Major League Baseball (MLB) failed to reach an agreement with the players and end a management lockout, canceling a total of 91 regular season games for the 30 teams on Tuesday. The Detroit Tigers opener is now set to take place on April 8 – if it’s not delayed again, of course.

To help ease the sting of Detroit sports fans, the Detroit City Football Club is offering a limited number of free tickets for their upcoming games to Tigers ticket holders. Anyone who had tickets to the Tigers game on March 31, or anyone who holds a Tigers season ticket, can redeem free DCFC tickets for games at their Keyworth Stadium in Hamtramck in March and April.
“A sports city is only as strong as its traditions, and Opening Day is the greatest tradition in sports in Detroit,” said Alex Wright, co-owner DCFC. “This year, families and friends are missing, but we are powerless to do anything. In response, the DCFC is coming up with a new tradition: make one of our home games your opening day this spring.. All fans have to do is show they’ve got baseball season tickets or home opener tickets, and we’ll show them the most electrifying and affordable sporting event in town is always open for business. Memories shouldn’t have to wait for baseball to sort itself out.
Those interested in redeeming free DCFC tickets can call their box office at 313-634-DCFC or email [email protected].
