15,000 Founding Members

New York City – New York City FC, have announced that they will open the 400 level at Yankee Stadium due to huge demand for their historic first home game in Major League Soccer on Sunday March 15 against New England Revolution. The Club made the announcement as they welcomed their 15,000th Founding Member with season ticket sales continuing to grow. The news comes less than ten days after the Club opened the 300 level to ensure as many New Yorkers as possible can access this momentous occasion.


Tom Glick, President of New York City FC, said:


“Demand for seats for this historic game has been tremendous and momentum is growing by the day. It was only ten days ago that we announced that the 300 level will be open. Now with more than 30,000 sold, we have decided to open even more seats. New Yorkers clearly want to be part of this landmark moment for our Club and for soccer and we are giving them every opportunity to come and support their new team.”


Yankee Stadium, as configured for New York City FC matches, will typically hold 27,528 fans, but an exception is being made to expand and open up the entire stadium to accommodate the huge demand for this historic game.


Sporting Director Claudio Reyna commented on hitting 15,000 season tickets, saying:


“It is incredible how fast our fan base is growing. We have added another 1,000 Founding Members in less than two weeks.  Our team is excited for Sunday and can’t wait to play for New York City and for our new fans.”


More than 60% of season ticket holders are buying their first season ticket for any professional sport.


Many seating sections are sold out or nearing capacity but great options are still available for full or partial season tickets.
