FC Cincinnati fans are eagerly awaiting news about whether the soccer club will be granted an expansion bid from Major League Soccer.
The Motor City was named as one of four finalists to receive one of two available MLS expansion franchises by 2020 - a list that includes Sacramento, Nashville, and Cincinnati.
Meanwhile, several semi-pro teams call the region home, including Detroit City FC who play home games at Keyworth Stadium in Hamtramck.
Nashville was competing with Detroit, Cincinnati and Sacramento for two expansion openings for the 2020 season. The expansion franchise award was not as simple as a meeting followed by an announcement.

Campbell Soup said the acquisition will help expand its position in the $89 billion snacking market in the U.S. Campbell's baked snacks product portfolio generated approximately $2.5bn in net sales in fiscal 2017.
The announcement is a likely sign that Nashville has been chosen for one of the league's two expansion teams, a bid the city has always been a strong contender for.
However, it also suggests that getting a team up and running is more time sensitive compared to the situation in Sacramento and Nashville and having two wealthy owners behind the bid, plus a rock solid soccer-specific stadium plan at the fairgrounds site sealed the deal.
