Own A Piece of U.S. Soccer History (If You Are Minted).



Anyone out there have any interest in starting up Motor City FC? C'mon, you know you want to purchase the Pontiac Silverdome as your home field since it's up for auction due to no one actually wanting to buy an outdated, outsized, domed stadium in the outskirts of Detroit outright.

This is the same building that hosted the first-ever indoor World Cup match, during which the U.S. began it's World Cup '94 campaign in a 1-1 draw against the Swiss. So it's historical you see. Plus you could rename it the Lalas Dome in honor of Michigan's most famous soccer sons. So...who wants it?

I'd trade my SNES straight up for it, no doubt.

what a bizarre story, a perfectly fine stadium meeting an end like this, kinda redic how short a lifespan the stadiums of the 60's, 70's and 80's had.

I was at that 1-1 game with the Swiss in '94...when the U.S. scored that whole place went crazy! I was a kid and became a soccer fan right then and there. What a moment. To bad I'm broke.

If you live in Detroit, you can go play on the World Cup turf, which was laid down at Belle Isle after the cup.

Well, if you don't live in Detroit, you can do it, but you'd have to get here first. And then, of course, put up with Detroit.
