New York City FC entered MLS in 2015 as an expansion side along with Orlando City SC. The club was created through a partnership between the City Football Group, which owns Manchester City of the Premier League in England, and Yankee Global Enterprises which manage the New York Yankees and Yankee Stadium. As the second MLS club in the New York City area, but the only one inside city limits, the team and fans have a fierce rivalry (The Hudson River Derby) with the New York Red Bulls. NYCFC’s crest, color scheme, and jerseys pull from Manchester’s ‘City Blue’, the city’s flag, and the iconic Yankee stripes.

Yankee Stadium is the second iteration of the historic American sports arena. Opened in 2009, it seats roughly 29,000 for MLS matches but is expandable to over 47,000 for bigger games. While visiting the stadium, head over to Heritage Field which is where the original Yankee Stadium stood from 1923 until 2008 and hosted Yankees (MLB), Giants (NFL), Cosmos (NASL), Muhammad Ali’s boxing title defense, and visits from three Popes.

The renovations at Yankee Stadium make it a top-class facility, even if it seems odd seeing a soccer pitch arranged into a baseball field. There is something for everyone. The cheapest tickets are located at both ends of the soccer pitch throughout both the first and second tiers.
