The league and New York City have been involved in negotiations to build a stadium on a 10-acre site in the Flushing Meadows park. A team there would start play in 2016 and be rivals of the New York Red Bulls, who play in Harrison, N.J.
The proposal also includes plans for restaurants, retail space, a hotel and a park. It would be built in a corner of the Elmont property that borders New York City.
The New York Cosmos are back. After a nearly 30-year absence, the Cosmos joined the North American Soccer League on Thursday. The team will begin league play in the 2013 season.
Giorgio Chinaglia, legendary Cosmos striker passed away on Sunday at 65. Few athletes enjoyed the excesses of winning in New York quite like Chinaglia.
