Detroit City FC is adding 12 suites at field level behind the north goal this season as part of ongoing improvements at Keyworth Stadium.

The suites, which replace a portable VIP grandstand, will be made of repurposed shipping containers and include a television, DCFC artwork and have catering service from Slows BBQ, Royal Kabob, Srodek’s and Detroit City Fieldhouse. Each suite will accommodate up to 16 people.

Suites will be sold on an annual and game-by-game basis. Seven of the 12 suites have been accounted for so far, DCFC CEO Sean Mann said.

Permanent concession stands built out of shipping containers will also be also added this season. Vendors used food service trucks and tents in the past.

The suites are the latest upgrades to the stadium, which added a new artificial playing surface last month. The improvements are being made possible through a grant to Hamtramck Public Schools from the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation as part of a master plan to revitalize Hamtramck’s 26-acre Veterans Memorial Park and the surrounding area.

Financing and revenue from the suites have been earmarked for structural improvements to the historic stadium’s east grandstand. Those include bleacher repairs and eventually rebuilt restrooms.

With the new suites and east grandstand improvements, Keyworth Stadium’s seating capacity will increase to 7,933. The portable VIP grandstand will be moved to the stadium's south end.

Single game tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
