NEW YORK - New York City FC (NYCFC), today, released a new stadium progress time-lapse vine that featured exclusive video for their twitter followers.
The vine reportedly featured NYCFC COO Jon Patricof going to community development meetings and then leaving empty handed after ultimately failing to find any political purchase in the city despite bringing briefcases full of cash.
"Even those of us with City Football Group have to admit that it is a lot more difficult to purchase land in the New York Metropolitan area than we originally thought," stated Patricof to The Nutmeg News.
"As it currently stands, the City Football Group is realizing that the only way we are going to get a deal done is through backroom politics and bribing public officials to utilize eminent domain. Even then, we are finding it difficult as bribing politicians in New York City is more expensive than we originally thought, as well."
Patricof admitted that despite the financial assets of City Football Group that if a deal doesn't get done in 10 or eleven years that, "we might have to consider a stadium in the vicinity of New York City rather than directly in one of the five boroughs."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as City Football Group explore what kind of concessions they could receive from the city of Hoboken.
