Rockers General Manager, Nick Field welcomes new Team President, Scott Brand to the Organization.

The Motor City Rockers announced today the hiring of Scott Brand as Team President. Brand’s duties will include creating corporate partnerships, ticket sales, promotions, and business operations.

Scott also oversaw the renovation of historic Golden Park in Columbus, GA. 

Prior to his time in Columbus, GA, he led a group that created the highly successful expansion pro hockey team in Winston-Salem, NC with the Carolina Thunderbirds.

“I am very excited to come home to Michigan, have the opportunity to fill Big Boy Arena and be a part of the Rocker’s family. I know our organization will be able to provide affordable family friendly entertainment and great hard-hitting hockey. The single A level FPHL has a proven track record of being fan friendly, a place for our players to develop and provide the league owners with a great economic model. I realize how important it is for our league to be successful in the Michigan market and look forward to help create a winning team, both on and off the ice. I know that with our great collection of owners, the outstanding job that Nick Field and Gordie Brown has done with the hockey operations, plus the way Big Boy Arena leadership has welcomed me at the arena, we are going to have a tremendous future. “

The Rockers have begun to create corporate partnership packages for the 2023-24 season and expect to put tickets plan on sale beginning June 1st. If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please contact the Rockers at
