Do you hate the Yankees? Do you hate Manchester City? Then this is the game for you. New York City FC takes everything you like the least about the Yankees, Man City and MLS and puts them in one single place. The Seattle Sounders take the field at Yankee Stadium at 10 AM Pacific, for TV reasons (Hi ESPN!). This match kicks off the return of MLS soccer after the international break.
This is NYCFC’s Pride match and Hudson River Blue asks their fellow fans to respect that.
Robert Sibiga is the center referee.
Injuries and Suspensions
Officially no players are away on international duty, but Jordy Delem is probably already with Martinique at the Caribbean Cup. Maximiliano Moralez is both out injured and a single yellow away from an accumulation suspension. Ethan White and Tony Alfaro are two yellows from suspension. Alfaro is listed as questionable, as is Brad Evans. Maxime Chanot is questionable for NYCFC and Khiry Shelton is out.
This section is finally small and reasonable.
