Historical Moments:

2015: As the MLS approached its 20th season, plans to grow the league continued with the hopes of putting a second team in New York, to actually play in of New York's five boroughs. However talks to put a team in Queens next to Citi Field fizzled, when Owners of the New York Mets were involved in the Bernie Madoff ponzie scheme. New York's other baseball team the Yankees would pick up the slack and partner with Manchester City to create New York City Football Club. Initially the team would play at Yankee Stadium, with plans to build a soccer specific stadium down the road. NYC FC coached by Jason Kreis made its debut on March 8th, facing fellow newcomer Orlando City at the Citrus Bowl. Things looked good early as Mix Diskerud scored in the 76th minute to give New York a 1-0 lead. However, in injury time Kaka would score, forcing NYC FC to settle for  a 1-1 draw. A week later New York City FC would make their home debut at chilly Yankee Stadium with 43,507 fans on hand at Yankee Stadium to see NYC stun the New England Revolution 2-0 on goals by David Villa and Patrick Mullins. There wasn't much to cheer about after that as a 0-7-3 stretch stuffed NYCFC down the standings of the East. The team's stars such as Andrea Pirlo, David Villa and Frank Lampard arrived in midseason and by that point it was too late for them to make a difference as NYCFC ended their first season with an eighth place record of 10-17-7.

2016: With new coach Patrick Vieira on board, the City would have a hard time getting a footing. After winning their first match against Chicago, NYCFC struggled after that, tying four and losing three. Then came a four match winning streak in the summer which helped vault them to the upper end of the East. NYC would overcome some defensive inconsistencies to finish in second place at15-10-9, three points in back of the Red Bulls. But in the conference semifinals, the season would come to a screeching halt as they were destroyed by Toronto FC 7-0 on aggregate.
