APSL EXPANDS TO THE BIG APPLE

     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).
