MORE SOCCER: In Detroit, Bill Shea noted Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross, whose Relevent Sports agency is running the Champions Cup, "has donated more money than anyone else" to UM.

Higgins also called General Motors' involvement in the tournament "instrumental to making it happen." Higgins: "They've been a big driver of it.
