New York City FC is set to begin play in the 2015 MLS season, and it still doesn’t have a place to call home. However, leaked sketches for a new soccer stadium on Manhattan’s Pier 40 leaked on the internet, sparking rumors that it could be for NYC FC’s new arena.
It would make for one of the coolest venues in all of soccer, that’s for sure. T
Are you getting excited, New Yorkers?
Don’t. Actually, pump the brakes.
The images are apparently not part of the plan for NYC FC’s future home, but rather conceptual designs that MLS produced in the past when considering Pier 40 as a potential soccer stadium. Currently, there are no plans in the works for such an arena. Sorry.
However, if MLS would somehow reconsider the project, we’re sure NYC FC’s joint partners, Manchester City and the New York Yankees, would be more than willing to splash the cash to make it a reality. Just look at the thing! The club would then certainly be off to a good start in competing with the two other local teams — the Red Bulls and the Cosmos — for the city’s attention.
