I have little interest in soccer, but if I didn’t have work on that Saturday, I would make my way to Queens for this one.
Due to preparations for potential Yankees Postseason games, Yankee Stadium, the home the still relatively new MLS club, NYCFC (which is not the name of a bank or some elaborate gym, it stands for New York City Football Club) will not be available for soccer use, and will instead turn to Citi Field for their last home game of their regular season.
For what it’s worth, the club is 16-9-8, and has already clinched a spot in the MLS Playoffs, as have the opposition, the Columbus Crew, so you’d be watching good soccer.
The game will be held this upcoming Saturday at 4pm, and, in typical Mets fashion, nothing will be easy in the ticketing process. There are multiple release dates, depending on how loyal you are to either the NYCFC Club or the Mets. Season ticket holders of the Mets will be able to purchase their tickets tomorrow at 2pm, while general ticket seekers will have to wait until Tuesday in order to grab a seat. Here are the seating charts and various price points:
