Taking huge strides towards their inaugural season in USL in 2022, expansion side Queensboro FC have announced the site for their new stadium, and it’s set to be the first soccer specific stadium built by a pro team in New York City.

Queesnboro FC caught the eye recently by unveiling their new limited edition community kit, which was launched alongside the announcement that the MediSys Health Network would be its official and exclusive Founding Medical Partner. And the club’s identity continues to grow, with the latest news that they are set to have a new home, that of York College of The City University of New York (CUNY), and it’s set to be the first ever purpose-built stadium, specifically designed for soccer, by any professional sports team in New York City.

Staying true to the club’s vision to deliver an innovative and unique fan experience, the 7,500-seat modular stadium will be designed in partnership with Populous, a leading global architecture firm that has created some of the world’s best sporting facilities. 

To celebrate this announcement, QBFC has launched The 1909 Club for its fans, named in honor of the Queensborough Bridge, which opened in 1909 and is an integral part of QBFC's crest design. 

Today is an exciting day for Queensboro FC. The announcement of our home stadium site at York College represents a bold new chapter for professional sports in New York City,” said Jonathan Krane, Owner of Queensboro FC. “More importantly, we are proud to deliver our QBFC fans a dedicated soccer specific venue, built by and for the Queens community, bringing us all together to celebrate the beautiful game. 

Sentiments followed up by Aly Wagner, former US Women’s National Team star and currently part of Queensboro FC ownership group, who said “The soccer community in Queens is finally getting what they’ve always wanted – their own team and their own stadium. We have worked really hard over the past two years to bring QBFC to life, and this stadium represents a huge step forward. It will serve as a physical manifestation, and a leading example, of how to build a modern-day soccer team in an ever-changing world of sports and entertainment.
