Garber Talks N.Y. Stadium Progress, Says Cosmos' Plan Not A Focus
MLS Commissioner Don Garber said that the league is “making progress on their stadium push in Queens" for a second N.Y. team, and wants to "get the situation wrapped up soon,” according to Brian Lewis of the N.Y. POST. Garber said of the NASL N.Y. Cosmos’ plans, “We’re not at all focused on them or what they’re doing. We are very focused on our plans in New York. We continue to meet with the city, continue to meet with community leaders and investors, and making a lot of progress, too.” Lewis wrote MLS is “pushing forward with plans to build a stadium in Flushing Meadow Park -- although there are significant hurdles to clear with regards to their desired 10-acre plot.” Garber said, “We still have work to do in the community, but we continue to meet with the community and we’ve got work to do there.” Garber “wouldn’t be pinned down on a timeframe, but did say time is of the essence” (NYPOST.com, 3/17).
