More about New York City FC
Backed by English soccer club Manchester City and the New York Yankees, NYCFC fulfilled Major League Soccer's dream of having a second team to capitalize on the large New York City market. The deep pockets behind NYCFC ensure that the team will always have notable players suiting up for its side. In the first season of play, NYCFC had signed Spanish superstar David Villa and Frank Lampard. The current manager of NYCFC is Dom�nec Torrent. NYCFC has become known for its attacking brand of soccer. The team plays free-flowing soccer in a manner similar to the Latin American game. This makes the team especially popular in New York City. NYCFC has an intense rivalry with the New York Red Bulls.
The New York City FC experience
Although NYCFC is on the hunt for a permanent stadium within the boundaries of New York City, the temporary venue is an appealing place to watch a soccer game. Yankee Stadium, for all of its odd dimensions, is a quirky place for soccer. In addition, the stadium has high-end amenities that provide fans with an upscale experience should they choose. The stadium holds approximately 29,000 for soccer games, but additional seats can be opened up for big games. The multicultural nature of New York City makes for a passionate soccer game as the supporters are colorful and creative.
There are two main supporter groups for NYCFC: the Third Rail and the New York City Supporters Club, which is a confederation of many different subgroups. One of the unique traditions of NYCFC soccer is that active New York City policemen and firefighters lead the players out onto the pitch for the "Tunnel of Honor." Goals are celebrated by blowing an authentic New York City train horn.
The history of New York City FC
NYCFC became the league's 20th franchise when it started play back in 2015. The team struggled in its inaugural season but took flight after a coaching change before its second year.
