NEW YORK (January 22, 2015) – The New York Cosmos announced today that the club will play a regular season game in 2015 at Coney Island’s MCU Park. As part of its Spring Season schedule in the North American Soccer League (NASL), the Cosmos will face the Ottawa Fury on Saturday, May 2 at MCU Park. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. ET.

“2015 marks Raúl’s debut season with our club,” Cosmos Chief Operating Officer Erik Stover said. “So we’re delighted to have the opportunity to play our first-ever game in Brooklyn and to continue to connect with fans and the soccer community in New York City.”


MCU Park is the centerpiece of historic Coney Island. It’s a multi-purpose venue that is not only the home of Brooklyn Cyclones championship baseball, but also a landmark in the Brooklyn community. Located just steps from Coney Island's famed boardwalk, MCU Park seats approximately 7,500 fans and hosts a variety of events and entertainment each year.


“MCU Park is excited to host the New York Cosmos, a club that has been instrumental in the development and popularity of soccer in the United States” said Steve Cohen, Vice President of the Brooklyn Cyclones. “Bringing professional soccer to Coney Island is another step in proving that the borough of Brooklyn is one of the best and most diverse sports markets in the country.”
