The U.S is one of the most sports loving nations in the world. However, most of the population is interested in the four major professional sports leagues in the country that encompass football, basketball, hockey and baseball. Interest in soccer has always been relatively low but that has all begun to change in the last few years. As the MLS rises in prominence, an increasing amount of world class players are making their way to America to continue their careers, with several new teams poised to join the league. One such franchise, that started playing this season, is the New York Football Club.
The New York City FC is one of the newest franchises to become part of the league. The plans for a soccer team based in New York had been doing the rounds for a while and it took some time for the idea to take shape. It took the popular English Premier League soccer club Manchester City and the historic New York Yankees to give the new franchise life and now it has designs on becoming one of the biggest soccer teams in the country. They have now begun to play and this is your chance to grab New York City FC tickets and watch them hit the turf live.
In 2010, it was the commissioner of the MLS, Don Garber, who first floated the idea of a soccer franchise based in New York. Even though the New York Red Bulls soccer club is also based in the same area, in New Jersey, it was felt that the city of New York still had plenty to offer to a new franchise. Quite a few interested parties were sounded out, however no real solution was found. The very successful Spanish soccer club, FC Barcelona went furthest in their negotiations but the deal did not pan out. Instead, their vice president at the time, Ferran Soriano, soon moved to Manchester City to take over as the CEO and he was the one who finally managed to reach an agreement with the MLS.
The NYC club was founded with direct financial contribution from the Manchester City football club as well as the New York Yankees. The highly qualified Jason Kreis was named the new head coach who had years of experience and knowledge about the MLS. He brought with him an equally experienced backroom staff to give the new franchise a stable platform to build from.
The club was backed by heavy investments and since it was based in New York City, it attracted a lot of attention from players all over the world. The scouting network of the franchise also worked overtime to bring in quality players that would make them a competitive team in a very short time.
One of their first major acquisitions was David Villa, an accomplished striker from Spain. Villa is a World Cup winner and brought much needed experience to the relatively young squad. The club then also managed to recruit one of the best midfielders in the history of the English Premier League, Frank Lampard. A legend of the game, he had a lot to offer to his new club and was expected to have an instant impact once he joined up with the squad.
With two very well respected sports teams backing them up by building up a strong squad roster, the soccer club is on the right path. They have started their first MLS season quite well and there are signs that the team is going places. With so much expected from them, here is your chance to support your favorite team. They will need all the backing they can get from the supporters to make an instant impact on the field. Grab your New York City FC tickets and enjoy watching these newcomers as they take on the best to beat them, live.
