New York City FC is the first and only Major League Soccer team to play in the five boroughs of New York City. Since NYCFC’s inception in 2015, the club has cemented its status as a cornerstone in the landscape of one of the world's most competitive and proudest sporting cities.

Majority owned by City Football Group, New York City FC plays its home games at the iconic Yankee Stadium, which is also home to minority owner, the New York Yankees.

Sporting Director Claudio Reyna, the former Manchester City FC and United States international player and Head Coach Patrick Vieira, the former French FIFA World Cup-winning midfielder, have formed a roster that boasts global superstars, MLS and international veterans, as well as some of the United States' rising stars.

Spain’s record goalscoring striker David Villa became NYCFC’s first-ever signing and captain on June 2, 2014, swiftly followed by Chelsea legend Frank Lampard before, a year later, in the midst of the club’s inaugural season, FIFA World Cup winning midfielder, Andrea Pirlo became the third Designated Player in club history.

Following an eighth place finish in 2015’s inaugural campaign, NYCFC bounced back to secure their first MLS Playoffs appearance in just their second season of existence, finishing 2016 with more goals than any other team, resulting in a second place finish in the Eastern Conference. Villa also showed his dominance in the 2016 MLS campaign, earning the Landon Donovan MLS Most Valuable Player, scoring a club-high 23 goals in the season.

New Yorkers embraced their new Club with open arms from the start, with 20,000 season ticket holders in their inaugural season, as well as drawing an average attendance of 29,000 in their first year, making New York City FC one of the most well-supported teams in the league.
