New York City FC Home Schedule
New York City FC’s 2019 schedule includes 17 home games at Yankee Stadium, with their home opener coming in the second game of the season against D.C. United (March 10). NYFC will host the in-state rival New York Red Bulls (August 24) in a game known as the Hudson River Derby. Other key home games include the Portland Timbers (July 7) and Atlanta United FC (September 25), the two teams who met in last year’s MLS Cup final.
New York City FC at Yankee Stadium
New York City FC joined Major League Soccer as an expansion team, becoming the league’s 20th team. They were officially announced in 2013 and played their first season in 2015. Their home stadium has always been Yankee Stadium, a venue they share with the illustrious New York Yankees.
NYFC struggled in their inaugural season, but they’ve been outstanding — and remarkably consistent — ever since. They have qualified for the playoffs in each of the last three seasons, and each time made it to the conference semifinals. Striker David Villa, who was named the team’s first captain, has led the team in scoring each year as well.
New York City FC play in the Eastern Conference of MLS. The other members of the Eastern Conference are Atlanta United FC, the Chicago Fire, FC Cincinnati, Columbus Crew SC, D.C. United, Montreal Impact, New England Revolution, New York Red Bulls, Toronto FC, Orlando City SC, and Philadelphia Union.
