It is a great pleasure to announce that Meraki FC is a "Youth Partner" of New York City FC, the Major League Soccer (MLS) team. NYCFC's roster includes international superstars like David Villa, Andrea Pirlo and Frank Lampard, who play their home games at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, competing against teams such as Orlando City SC, LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls.
The Youth Partnership is a great way to share our love of soccer with Meraki coaches, players and families, who will have access to on-field experiences, chalk talks and the chance to see our Meraki FC name in lights at Yankee Stadium.
As a NYCFC Youth Partner, Meraki FC also enjoys:

  • Significantly discounted season and group tickets that provide fundraising opportunities and allow MFC players and coaches to learn the game at the highest level in person.

  • On-field experiences for MFC players, who will have the opportunity to watch pre-match warm-ups from the NYCFC team bench and lead the on-field procession while holding the NYCFC and visiting team flags during the national anthem.

  • Exposure and recognition for the club, whose logo will be displayed on the video boards at the stadium on match days and on the website.

  • Opportunities for coach and player education via NYCFC coaches clinics, chalk talks prior to kickoff at select matches, visits/coaching sessions with NYCFC players, and access to talent centers and tournaments hosted by NYCFC Academy trainers.
