by Jabari Bruce

Queensboro FC, an expansion soccer club from the United Soccer League (USL), has received approval to build a new stadium at CUNY’s York College to host their home games. This is the first purpose-built soccer stadium in New York City.

The stadium will be located behind the gymnasium and will feature a large purple and black walkway to the arena, 7,500 seats, and a jumbo screen. The building will be built in partnership with Populous, an acclaimed architecture firm specializing in sport facilities.

According to the York College website, CUNY granted QBFC access to construct the facility on April 27, 2021. CUNY Chancellor Félix V. Matos Rodríguez expressed how excited the organization is about this addition to what the college has to offer students and members of the community. Rodriguez stated, “The City University of New York is proud to partner with Queensboro FC in bringing a professional soccer stadium to York College in Queens, a place world-renowned for its cultural and linguistic diversity, and for its love of el fútbol”. “This new stadium is a great addition to the York College campus and will benefit not only CUNY students and the local community, but all New Yorkers and fans of soccer.”

Fans are able to place a $25 dollar deposit to hold reservations for season tickets.
