Default Ophir Field

Anyone been by there? Just happened to see they have a construction cam and they are prepping the field. Does anyone know how far away they are before the turf goes in? Mechanicals, lights all in and if I squint I think I can see goals off in the distance.

New turf + 90,000 sqft dome in winter. NYSC putting lots of pressure on non-MLS DA competition (FCW, BS). Nice to see an announced facility actually getting completed.

(not an NYSC parent, but a little jealous!)

Turf is supposed to be going in this or next week. Probably the main question for NYSC parents is how many teams will actually get games and training scheduled there, since they do have to share w manhattanville college. My assumption is only DA teams. Younth teams and NPL might still end up nomads.

I have been by there for my kid's practice. Facility looks almost complete (minus the bubble, which wouldn't be up until late fall anyway). It is pretty cool to see a real home facility get built.

OP. Was nearby on biz and went by - lots of work going on - looks like final agg getting laid down before turf so feels like final push to get done (still needs fencing completed). I must say, wow, it's a massive field. That bubble will be awesome in Winter

Default NYSC home campus

New York Soccer Club, in partnership with Manhattanville College, is building a turf field, indoor and year round facility.

There is ANOTHER turf field there that the college uses, and the partnership allows both the College and the Club to use BOTH. So they build 1 turf field, and get to use 2.

What that means, is that the younger ages and non DA teams will all practice there.

And the 90,000 square feet of indoor space allows for 3 indoor professional futsal courts for winter use.

The turf is being put down right now. If you want to watch it live just click here.

This is 1000% an amazing development for youth soccer in the NY METRO area. The entire facility will be ready for play as early as 9 days from now. If you go to the DA website, you can see scheduled games already on the April calendar.

All the new turf fields in the world will not help their GDA program, the best talent goes to NYCFC, and always will....
