Cosmos to move out of Hofstra?

I guess that means no more Cosmos game for me. If I'm going to go as far as Coney Island I think I'll go to a Man City game instead.

It's not official yet. Brooklyn MCU would be a far better situation for the Cosmo's men's side as attendance at Hofstra Shuart has been dwindling. Unfortunately, it does impact my ability to attend games with the family (similar to the Islanders move to Barclay's).

Is the Belmont park stadium project dead? It's unbelievable that the state would take this long to make a decision on that parcel of land.

I wonder how this would impact the Cosmos DA teams going forward. It would be unfortunate for Long Island to lose its pro boys DA option so quickly.

My understanding is that the Belmont project isn't dead but it's slowed down greatly by state inaction. They should end up in Belmont

Maybe they should have Larry broker the deal.

I hope they stay in Nassau. Brooklyn would be a good temporary option, as it seems there are issues at Hofstra. Why not just move across the street to Mitchell?

The second NYCFC was announced the chances of the Cosmos building a stadium died. Without the prospects of becoming a MLS franchise there no fiscally responsible path to fund a new stadium.

Unfortunately that's the truth. There are some great retired players vested in the Cosmos too. Shep Messing is a historic goalie for the Arrows. If Long Island couldn't get funding for the Islanders hockey team they aren't doing it for the Cosmos. Please don't send another team to Brooklyn!!!

Mitchell is a HORRIBLE field! The surface is the worst and the facilities are terrible too. I think they should figure out a way to play at Icahn field on Randall's Island. Lots of soccer history there and would tweak NYCFC by playing right next to Manhattan.
