NYCFC (New York City Football Club) is New York City’s Major League Soccer team. It plays from a modified field in Yankee Stadium.
The club is co-owned by the Yankees and Manchester City, so you see the City model of football.
NYCFC’s arch-rivals are the NY Red Bulls who play from in Harrison, New Jersey (basically Newark) across the Hudson River, but still in the New York Metro Area.
