Ten days ago on Saturday, Nov. 5 the
Cosmos won a North American Soccer League semifinal playoff game at
Shuart Stadium in Hempstead, N.Y. on Long Island.
Two days ago on Sunday, Nov. 13 they celebrated winning their second
consecutive Soccer Bowl triumph and third in four years at Belson
Stadium in Queens, N.Y.
And sometime next April, they could be playing their first game of the 2017 season at MCU Park in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The Cosmos are leaning closer to selecting the minor-league baseball
park as their 2017 home field, according to local soccer sources. The
Brooklyn Cyclones call MCU home.
No final decision has been made yet, a source said.
After Hofstra University officials told the Cosmos that they were not
interested in hosting games next year, the team was forced to look for a
new venue. Local options of finding a medium-sized stadium in the
metropolitan area are slim and none.
