New York Cosmos Schedule
The New York Cosmos are ready to play out of this world this season when they take to
the field to take on some tough opponents. The Cosmos have a roster laden with talent, and the tea is hoping to climb to the
top of the standings. The Cosmos played well during the fall season, winning nine games and finishing atop the standings.
They are looking to continue that run during this fall season when they take on some of the best teams in the league. The
Cosmos will certainly be wary when taking on the Carolina RailHawks, who finished in second place last fall. The Tampa Bay
Rowdies could be another team that is tough to take down, as they finished third in 2013. Check out the full Cosmos schedule
to see what other teams are slated to visit in 2014.
New York Cosmos History
The history of the Cosmos
dates back to 1970, when the team played in the North American Soccer League. After the league was dissolved in 1984, soccer
disappeared from the Big Apple until an anonymous group of entrepreneurs funded the revival of the team in 2010. After a 20-year
hiatus from competitive soccer, the Cosmos returned to the pitch in fall 2013. The Cosmos did not suffer any growing pains
in that first season of fall play, and the team won the Fall Season Championship. The New York Cosmos look to build on that
fall season of success with a strong spring season of play in 2014. Ultimately, the goal of the Cosmos is to be invited to
join the ranks of the Major League Soccer teams in the U.S.
Currently, the New York Cosmos
play at James M. Shuart Stadium on the campus of Hofstra University. The stadium offers seating for nearly 12,000 fans and
is only 20 miles from downtown New York City. Plans are in the pipeline to build a new state-of-the-art 25,000-seat stadium
between Queens and Nassau County. However, in the meantime the team's current home makes for a great place to catch a game.
The atmosphere inside this building is incredible when the Cosmos take the field to play against a top opponent. Experience
it for yourself this season by heading out to one of the many great matchups on the docket for New York.
