Upper 90 Soccer, Spreading the News

Upper 90 Soccer has a nice piece on their website about our meeting tomorrow:
NYCFC Supporters' Group To Hold First Meeting Tomorrow
Posted on February 21, 2014

New York City is red–or is it?

Tomorrow, fans of New York City FC will hold their first supporters’ group meeting at the Football Factory in Midtown Manhattan. Together, the group hopes to gather ideas for tifo, chants, and much more, per a release from its website.

While many might question the support of a club without a crest, home, or even much of an identity, it's great to see NYCFC fans already banding together along with the backing of the team itself. We're not sure what the city’s soccer landscape will look like come 2015–when NYCFC officially enter MLS play–but, with the blue side of town already staking its claim, that’s the type of fandom we wholeheartedly support.

Here are details for the event, which will also provide the opportunity for fans to nab official supporters' scarves:
First Organizational Meeting
Saturday, Feb. 22 — 12 Noon
Football Factory at Legends Bar
6 West 33rd St.
