Pistons vice-chairman: Detroit MLS franchise bid will boost young players

Detroit Pistons vice-chairman Arn Tellem, one of the leaders of the city’s bid for an MLS franchise, has said he believes a rising appetite for the game in Michigan means it will be a success.

Detroit is due to make its case for a franchise at a presentation to MLS commissioner Don Garber and league officials next month.

And Tellem feels a growing interest in football in Michigan, along with a young fanbase and MLS eagerness to grow the game in inner cities, means Detroit’s bid can succeed.
