A great day for American soccer. The problem is that there is no soccer specific stadium available at the moment. The NY Yankees do have the capability to convert their stadium for soccer matches but that is not an ideal solution. The losers will be the existing NY franchise who are disgustingly named after an energy drink. ( Hint: their logo is a bull painted red)
The issue regarding a stadium in Flushing meadows park is also contentious because of the parkland that will be razed to make way for the private facility. Hopefully the Yankees will use their clout with City Hall to help push through the approval process for the new stadium.
