Yankee stadium seats with scarf

New York City FC will open the 300 level at Yankee Stadium for their first ever game in New York, due to popular demand for seats. New York City FC will take on
New England Revolution on Sunday March 15
and are making more seats available as they have exceeded 25,000 tickets sold for their first game.
Tom Glick, President of New York City FC, said:
“We are excited to be making more tickets available as we see such strong demand for our first ever home game. We are extremely pleased that so many New Yorkers want to be part of history and be there as we kick-off in New York City. This is a landmark moment for our Club and for soccer in New York.”
Jason Kreis, Head Coach of New York City FC, said:
“We are extremely excited about playing in front of our fans in New York for the first time. We have had fantastic support throughout our pre-season. For the team and for me, playing in front such a large crowd at Yankee Stadium is going to be very special.”
Yankee Stadium, as configured for soccer, will typically hold 27,528 fans, but because of continued momentum building around the first game it will be expanded to accommodate additional New Yorkers.
This announcement, comes as New York City FC announced that they
have sold more than 14,000 season tickets
for their inaugural season.
