Rockers Announce Scott Brand as Team President


A momentous day for the Motor City Rockers franchise as they have officially announced Scott Brand as their Team President. I've been waiting for this to be made official as there is a lot to say about this hiring and the implications on the long-term success of this franchise in Metro Detroit. For an FPHL franchise looking to build corporate sponsorships and a fan base, you really cannot make a better move than this. Brand has had success everywhere he has been, including building both Carolina, and most recently Columbus, into FPHL hotbeds. With Nick Field continuing on as General Manager and the addition of Brand, if this group cannot build the Rockers into an institution in this area, no one can. As a supporter and fan of the franchise, I can't emphasize enough how huge this is and how excited fans should be about the direction of the Motor City Rockers. 

I will have a lot more to say about not just the Brand hiring, but the outlook for the Rockers to build a diehard fan base that packs Big Boy Arena on a nightly basis in a future post I am planning. But in trying to keep this blog timely with news, I wanted to get this up the same day as the announcement was made. The team's full press release can be seen here. Of note, the team expects to announce ticket plans for the 2023-24 season on June 1st.
