2021 MLS Cup Champion New York Metropolis FC has shaped a partnership with Mayor Eric Adams, Board Member Francisco Moya, unions and the Queens Improvement Group that can deliver a brand new mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhood to the Willets neighborhood Level in Queens.

Proposed plans embody an unique 25,000-seat stadium that can be solely privately financed, in addition to 2,500 models of 100% inexpensive housing. The positioning can be constructed with unionized labor and is anticipated to open in 2027.

“After we based our league 27 years in the past, we had a theme that we needed to be a league for a brand new America, a rustic that’s various, younger, linked with ardour, with a world sport, the attractive sport,” mentioned MLS Commissioner Don Garber.

“Now, right here we’re. The embodiment of that dream, that imaginative and prescient, lives on in cities throughout America and Canada. In the present day is without doubt one of the most vital days in our nice league’s historical past.”
