They have walked a tightrope to get there, but FC Motown is going to play for the top prize in the fourth tier of American soccer. -- the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) Championship. Tickets will be available for $10 at the gate.  Anyone under 17 will be admitted free. Parking is free and will be located in the two front lots by Ranger Stadium. 
 
FC Motown will play FC Miami 2 – winners of the sunshine conference – in the championship game on August 4, which will be played at FC Motown’s home pitch at Drew University. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 PM.
 
David Nigro’s winner in the second session of extra-time propelled the locals to a 2-1 victory over FC Mulhouse Portland in the NPSL semifinals on July 28, to send the Celtics to the Final.
 
 
To advance this far into the tournament, FC Motown had to navigate some close calls. In the regional final against the New York Cosmos B squad, the locals hopped out to a 3-0 lead but had to hold on after surrendering a pair of goals in stoppage time.
 
In the conference finals a week earlier, they needed a 90th-minute equalizer against West Chester United – a squad they had defeated twice in the regular season – to keep their dream alive.
