NYCFC Moves Season Finale To Citi Field With Yanks' Playoff Run
NYCFC will play their final regular-season game of the season at Citi Field because the Yankees advanced to the ALCS. Due to additional preparations for the MLB playoffs, there is insufficient time to convert Yankee Stadium should the team make the World Series. The Oct. 22 match against the Crew will be played at 4:00pm ET (NYCFC). While Citi Field "offers a more spacious outfield for soccer, the team will retain its smaller dimensions at Yankee Stadium for the match" (NYPOST.com, 10/12).
