New York City FC To Play At Yankee Stadium

Funny when a politician scooped the league on this one.

New York City major Michael Bloomberg posted on his website on Sunday about how great sports are in the city and he threw in a small little line about a new MLS squad that will kickoff in 2015.

“Yankee Stadium will become the home of the New York City Football Club, the first soccer club in the five boroughs since the 1970s.”

Yep. Yankee Stadium. I’m fairly certain we all saw this coming once the new team was announced a few weeks back. With no new stadium to be finished by 2015 when this team first kicks off, playing in a temporary stadium was always going to be the course of action.
