On August 15, 2019, Chattanooga FC, Detroit City FC, and Oakland Roots SC were accepted as members of the National Independent Soccer Association (NISA).

On January 27, 2020, NISA announced its spring schedule for the eight teams in the association, with each team playing 14 games (a home-and-home series with each team), to run from February 28th to June 13th.

The February 28th opening day featured 1904 FC visiting Stumptown Athletic, Cal United Strikers FC hosting Michigan Stars, our frenemies Chattanooga FC, flew out to California to play the Oakland Roots, and Detroit City FC played its first pro match in LA against Los Angeles Force.  Supporters packed the Detroit City Clubhouse to watch the live-stream of the match, which Detroit City FC won, 2-0, on goals by Matt Lewis and Roddy Green.

Then the pandemic hit.

Detroit City FC’s first home game as a Men’s professional team was to be March 21st, against Oakland Roots.  However, due to the pandemic, NISA suspended the season for 30 days on March 12th.  Eight days later, in compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, NISA suspended the season until May 10th.  On April 27th, NISA officially cancelled the Spring/Summer season.

This page is to show the record of Detroit City FC against each team in a NISA competition.
