APSL EXPANDS TO THE BIG APPLE
Published February 22, 1995
The APSL will add a seventh franchise with a new team in New York this spring, giving the Big Apple its first professional soccer franchise in 15 years. The New York Centaurs will play at Downing Stadium on Randall's Island. Team colors will be orange, blue and silver with a white logo -- similar to the Mets and Knicks. NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani says he hopes the team "could build on the soccer spirit" generated by the area's hosting of the World Cup last summer (AP/N.Y. POST, 2/22).
