New York City Football Club (NYCFC) is back representing New York City in the Major League Soccer (MLS) again. Last season in 2015, NYCFC started playing and they won the heart of many New Yorkers including myself. Many football (soccer) fanatics gathered at Yankee Stadium whenever they played to watch and support our beloved team. The first year we did not really care if the team was a title contender team or winning every games, we were just happy that we finally had a football (soccer) team in New York City that we could passionately support weeks and weeks out.
Even though the team was not winning a lot of games, that did not stop NYCFC fans to pack the stadium and to cheer as much as they can on the team. It was all about the experience of being part of the historic first season, the excitement of going to the games, being part of the great atmosphere in the stands and most importantly the anticipation of meeting new people and forming inseparable bonds to go behind a team that represent New York City.
Now in this new season we get to do it all over again and this time the overall experience is going to be better. First from the players because they know each other better now as a team since they been bonding with each other for well over a year. Second from the fans who will be able to coordinate better between them and therefore give the team better support and making the atmosphere in the stadium better each games.
But of course we can never forget the first ever season. It was epic, joyful, sometimes nerve racking but exciting and most of all promising. I made sure to remember the first season by taking photographs that highlighted last season’s atmosphere at the stadium created by die hard and passionate NYCFC fans. Last year was when everything started and this season and this year is when NYCFC is going to win many more hearts and soul of New Yorkers.
