In case you’ve been hiding under a rock the past few months, the212 has a new MLS expansion team ‘NYCFC’ launching in a few months. While their final roster is not set quite yet, their first large public announcement went down earlier this afternoon at Terminal 5 with a 42-minute ‘Welcome to the Club’ press conference and jersey release.
As of now, the NYCFC roster has six players including aging international stars David Villa & Frank Lampard. Yankee Stadium will be their home pitch for at least the first season of the franchise. Who knows how successful the team will be; however, it’s not as far of a trek uptown in comparison to the Red Bulls. Be sure to mark this down as a reminder for March 2015 as the212 already has season tickets, which sstart at $306 and are available here.
