We all have soccer mania right now with the World Cup going on. The New York Times has learned that NYC's first soccer stadium may be popping up very close to the Bronx Bombers' stomping grounds.
From Curbed NY:
While no final deal has been reached yet, the news is a bit of a shift from reports earlier this year that suggested the soccer stadium would be developed as part of a Hudson Yards-style development just north of the Willis Avenue Bridge, in the Bronx.
According to the NY Times:
A spokeswoman for the team said that New York City Football Club “is actively pursuing a permanent home in N.Y.C. and exploring several options, including working with Maddd Equities in the Bronx. We continue to engage in meaningful dialogue to understand what may be feasible on their site.”
