The Detroit Demolition was a women's American football team based in the Detroit, Michigan area. During their most recent season, home games were played at Franklin High School in Livonia. They joined the National Women's Football Association (NWFA) in 2002 as the Detroit Danger, winning a national championship. Their only loss that year was in the regular season to the Cleveland Fusion by a score of 14–3.


After an ownership change, and a name change to the Detroit Demolition, the team coached by Tony Blankenship won three more national titles, going undefeated in each of those three seasons and accumulating 52 consecutive wins. The Demolition sought membership into the Independent Women's Football League (IWFL) in 2006 and was subsequently accepted in the league. In 2005, the team played a special Mother's Day game at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions. The Demolition play their home games at Livonia Franklin High School. Detroit was upset in the 2006 IWFL Championship Game by the Atlanta Xplosion by a score of 21–14. It was only the Demolition's second loss in the franchise's five-year history.

The Detroit Demolition returned to the IWFL for the 2007 season and won the IWFL World Championship Game and took the title back from Atlanta Xplosion.
