NEW YORK - The New York Cosmos claimed soccer primacy in New York City as they prepare to play Indy Eleven in Soccer Bowl 2016 at 2700 person capacity Belson Stadium on Sunday, November 13th.
"We are premier club in New York City and if there are enough ticket sales for the NASL Championship we will consider expanding the Belson capacity to 5000," stated the Cosmos Press Release.
"As the only New York based soccer club to make it to their championship game we are proud to represent the five boroughs and all the outlying areas of the New York area. We sincerely hope that there is enough interest in the game to sell out and we are offering a buy one get one free for Soccer Bowl to hopefully get a great crowd out to watch the league final."
Reportedly, the Cosmos are excited at the opportunity to once again play in front of their home crowd, albeit at Belson Stadium in Queens instead of their usual stomping grounds at Hofstra University. Insider sources for the Cosmos stated to The Nutmeg News that, "at least there won't be a chance of any multisport markings on the field this time."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the Cosmos try to balance the ticket requests with their investigated bids for what it will take to put in a temporary grandstand and a portable foodcourt with porta potties for Soccer Bowl 2016.
