Away Days 2019: (NYCFC) – “Black, Gold & a lot of Green”

BRONX,NY – Taking home field advantage and translating it away from the Banc is a unique proposition.

Our mission to the share a little LA with the world sees us arrive at historic Yankee Stadium on March 17th for the first away day of the sophomore season of LAFC. For those new to travel, away days are as diverse and far-reaching as the country we live. From the 7-goal thriller in San Jose that the 3252 took as a day-trip to the inaugural season opener in Seahawks country, where many of our fans found themselves on the same plane home as our players – away day travel is a beast that we’re still figuring out the best ways to tame.

But if we can make an away day work in New York, surely we can make it work anywhere. Yes, a game played on St. Patty’s Day on the Yankee Stadium grass is sure to bring its own set of challenges, but we’d like to think it’ll come with significant reward. Away Days push the idea of 90+ min of active support to new dimensions. While many of us staying the weekend are spread throughout NYC’s 5 boroughs, there will be opportunities to explore the city with the traveling Black & Gold.

If you are in New York join us on Sunday for pregame festivities at Yankee Tavern, 72 E. 161st St. Bronx, NY 10451 until 1:30 p.m. ET
