MLS Expansion Club Eyeing Venue Site Near Yankee Stadium

MLS expansion club NYC FC is eyeing a new venue site "just south of Yankee Stadium in the Bronx," after its plans for a stadium in Queens were "interrupted by community opposition." If the latest plan succeeds, NYC FC would build a 25,000-30,000-seat venue that "offers connections to subways and rail lines, as well as Yankee Stadium" and the Gateway Center retail complex. Franchise owners the Yankees and Manchester City are "negotiating with the owners" of a nine-acre parcel (N.Y. TIMES, 8/30).
