Detroit City FC has met its fundraising goal to renovate the new site of its home matches, Keyworth Stadium in Hamtramck.

Investors have pledged $741,250, Detroit City FC announced Tuesday.

The fundraising campaign began in October, and the club set a goal of raising between $400,000 and $750,000.

Improvements to Keyworth will begin on the seating areas, locker rooms, restrooms and lighting.

DCFC partnered with Sidewalk Ventures LLC, MichiganFunders and Hamtramck Public Schools on this project. DCFC said 527 investors make pledges ranging from $250 to $50,000.

“Each of their investments in the Keyworth campaign has been a resounding endorsement of this approach to finding a home for soccer in Detroit," DCFC co-owner Sean Mann said.

The 2016 DCFC season begins with a road match against the Michigan Stars FC on May 13 in Pontiac.

The first home match at Keyworth will be on May 20 against AFC Ann Arbor.
