Wednesday Kickoff: MLS eyes Queens stadium site, Schweinsteiger fit and more
1 view • posted
MLS is reportedly closing in on a home for its coveted second New York franchise.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the league has zoned in on an area in Flushing
Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, where a 20,000-25,000-seat soccer-specific stadium would be built. A
proposal for what would be a privately funded stadium has been shown to local politicians, and
according to WSJ, since the stadium would be built on city-owned park land, the city council and
state legislature would need to sign off on the plan, which is in its infancy.
