This Week at #NYCFCHouse: 9/7 - 9/13

#NYCFCHouse, the club’s first-ever Pop-Up shop and experiential space, opened its doors last week in the heart of Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.

Last week, NYCFC House had a housewarming party to welcome guests to its grand opening and featured Chalk Talks from Chief Infrastructure Officer Jon Stemp, Head Coach Patrick Vieira, and Performance Analyst Dan Fradley. The House also featured soccer programs in its underground pitch, teaching children ball mastery, finishing, passing and speed of movement, and a watch party to watch USA take on Honduras.
