The new stadium will seat 7,500 people and is in one of the most diverse communities in the state. Populous will partner with QBFC to design the stadium, and they are known for some of the best venues in the world. Wembley Stadium, Emirates Stadium, and Audi Field are just three of their best projects. The new stadium should be ready for action in the Spring of 2022.
150+ different nationalities represent the borough of Queens and soccer is the top sport among all of them. These fans now get to bring their support from the amateur level at Flushing Meadows Corona Park to the professional level at York College.
“Today is an exciting day for Queensboro FC. The announcement of our home stadium site atÂ York CollegeÂ represents a bold new chapter for professional sports inÂ New York City,” saysÂ Jonathan Krane, Owner of Queensboro FC. The soccer team joins the New York Mets as the only two professional sports teams in Queens.
